Wherever people work together, there is a potential for conflict. Conflicts are not always addressed openly and fairly between everyone involved.

When conflicts can not be resolved by the people involved, we are available as partners to talk to.

We assist in reviving the dialogue between the parties to the conflict and help them to find solutions of their own.

Mediation in conflicts

Disability services for (prospective) students

The RheinMain University of Applied Sciences strives to take the needs of disabled students and chronically ill persons into account. Its efforts are directed at enabling these students to gain a good degree by participating in "normal" university life.

Prospective students and students with disabilities with specific questions and who need general counseling can contact the disablity officers. Unfortunately there is currently no contact person available at Wiesbaden campuses. The contact person for the Rüsselsheim campus is Prof. Dr. Harald Klausmann harald.klausmann(at)

Contact persons for students and prospective students with disabilities from both study locations are also the study counselors of the Student Counseling Office.

The Central Evaluation Office (ZES) supports all stakeholders of the university in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data from the central student and graduate surveys. The ZES gives advice for suitable concepts for the purpose of internal evaluation and provides data for development processes just like program development, (re) accreditation, quality assurance of teaching and learning, university management.
