Development of the FAU: Two ministers answer your questions

On November 10, 2022, 12:15 – 13:45 in the lecture hall C1 in the New Chemical Center, Nikolaus-Fiebiger-Str.10, 91058 Erlangen, UG 1 there will be a discussion with the Bavarian Minister of Science Markus Blume and Minister of the Interior Joachim Herrmann.

For us students, good teaching and learning spaces and also the condition of our campus are a very important component of our studies and also the Well Being during our studies.

For a long time, FAU was known as a rather dilapidated university, investments were postponed and delayed. In recent years, some projects have started to move. But is that enough? What about sustainable transformation? And by when will we have the infrastructure we need?

The panel is a great opportunity to follow up with your questions and, of course, learn about future building development at our FAU. For more info, feel free to check out: https://www.fau.de/termine/diskussionsrunde-entwicklung-der-fau-mit-markus-blume-und-joachim-herrmann/

Zoom chat: studying with disability

Studying can present a wide range of challenges for people with physical and mental disabilities. In a relaxed atmosphere, the Zoom chat on 18 November at 4 p.m. will provide a digital space for networking and exchanging tips and tricks about studying with disabilities. The chat takes place regularly on every 2nd Friday. The link to the Zoom chat is available on the website of the Office for Gender and Diversity (https://www.gender-und-diversity.fau.de/diversity/inklusion-an-der-fau/diversity-day-26-mai-2020-inklusion-an-der-fau/).

Demonstration: Stop patriarchal violence!

Patriarchal violence is a brutal and everyday reality: every third day a man murders his (ex-) partner (so-called femicide). On 25.11, the Trans Day of Remembrance is celebrated annually, on which all victims of transphobic violence are commemorated worldwide. Over 95% of women, lesbians, intersex, non-binary, trans and agender people (WLINTA for short) have experienced sexual harassment. Patriarchal violence limits and threatens the lives of WLINTA on a daily basis: let’s take to the streets together against this on the day against violence against women and queers! Let’s be loud together!

The demonstration will start on the 25th of November at 5:30 pm at Beşiktaş-Platz in Erlangen and will move through the city centre. Immediately afterwards, we would like to invite you to the Zentrum Wiesengrund for Vefa (Vegan Food for All), drinks and concert and lots of talks and networking.

We’ll clean it up! Come to our presentation and find out EVERYTHING you want to know about the Referendariat.
Experts give you insights into your type of school so that you are well prepared! Of course, you can bring your own questions with you, so that everything that is keeping you awake at night is clarified.

Erlangen has had enough! Solidarity against crises

Not much has changed of the fact that many of us are threatened by the price increases in our way of life. Whether it’s rising rents, food or energy prices – the costs of just securing a living continue to rise. Our incomes, on the other hand, only increase in small steps or even stagnate.
We are asked to economize, but anyone who has lived on a tight budget so far has hardly any opportunities to economize. Even those who have not previously been threatened or affected by poverty experience a loss of prosperity and — not infrequently — fear of social decline.
This climate of fear for one’s own future is exploited by right-wingers in order to gain power. We had to watch the elections in Italy with horror, but right-wing parties and organizations are also experiencing a hefty boost in Germany.

We do not allow the right to play us off against each other but we stand up for a solidary way out of the crises!
The alliance “Erlangen hat genug – solidarisch gegen die Krisen” is therefore calling for a demonstration on Saturday, November 5th at 2 p.m., starting from Hugenottenplatz (Erlangen). We go on the streets together with clear demands:

Erlangen has had enough – with solidarity through the crises!
We are in the middle of a social crisis. Food, rent and heating costs are increasing immeasurably. Many of us struggle to meet our basic needs. That must have an end! Therefore we demand:
– Energy and heating must be affordable!
– Put an end to the horrendous prices of food!
– An immediate rent freeze!
– Bus and train for everyone!
– Wages and welfare up!
– Excess profit tax: take responsibility for those profiting from the crisis!

We look forward to go on the streets together with you for a solidary way out of the crises . Bring your friends, colleagues and relatives with you so that we can show out loud: Erlangen has had enough!
