Task Force Inclusion


The Task Force (TF) Inclusion, which was founded on April 16, 2018, aims to further develop RWTH Aachen University into an inclusive university. The TF perceives itself as a body of experts from the university, which makes recommendations for the Senate and the Rectorate. 


Chaired by Prof. Dr. Ing. Gerd Ascheid and accompanied by the IGaD, which holds the management, the topics and tasks of the wg Inclusion are:

  • Analysis of existing inclusion and accessibility activities at RWTH
  • Defining the needs for action
  • Ensuring sustainability and quality development
  • Strategic further development and strategic anchoring
  • Creation of an inclusion plan
  • Examination of compliance with legal requirements (UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and state and federal legislation)
  • Examination of the implementation possibilities of the recommendation of the German Rector’s Conference at the RWTH
