AG Awareness

The Awareness working group is an independent working group of students and is formally affiliated with the university'sstudent council (StuRa). It is committed to preventing and fighting all forms of discrimination in everyday life at the university and campaigns for respectful interaction, a constructive feedback culture and against the abuse of power. To achieve this, it is in contact with the university management and the committees for equality. 

It also acts as an advisory centre for students by students. The group can be contacted by email: hfm.awareness(at), on Instagram: @hfm_ag.awareness and every Thursday from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in room 021 in the Fürstenhaus (only during lecture periods). 

Advisory center for students, run by students: Confidentiality and anonymity

The AG Awareness wants to support students who encounter problems, worries and conflicts during their studies. To this end, it offers a sympathetic ear, points out possible ways of action and, if necessary, provides referrals to internal and external counseling services.

All information will be treated confidentially. If you do not want to share your concern with the group as a whole, contact a person you trust in person or via their email address (see below). Only with your permission can this person consult anonymously within the team.

Further information


Such as the cultural sector as a whole, music universities are characterized by hierarchies and personal relationships. Students are in a close relationship with their individual teachers, who have a major influence on their student's professional careers. The university and its teachers are in responsibility to reflect on said dependencies in a relationship between student and university/teacher. They may also actively counteract any negative effects that can occur during the time spent at the university.

Effective prevention involves not only a public debate on the issues of power and closeness and distance, but also transparent complaint channels and sanction mechanisms.
