To be able to offer affected university members of all status groups and genders an appropriate (initial) counseling service, the University of Augsburg has implemented a software-supported concept. This serves as low-threshold counseling, enables digital anonymous contact, and thus represents a supplement to the complaint procedure according to the AGG.
