The University and Cigale asbl., the Centre for support, training and empowerment for LGBTQ+ persons, signed an agreement for on-campus support of staff and students of the University.

The agreement foresees regular visits of an expert (e.g. a psychologist) from Cigale to either Belval or Kirchberg campus, to meet persons individually and provide support for questions or issues they face.

The visits will start on a schedule of once per month and will later be scheduled according to requests for the service. To request support, students and staff can use Karaconnect, the University’s platform dedicated to wellbeing. The service will be provided free of charge and will respect the privacy of students and staff.

The University is firmly committed to equality, diversity, and respect for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. One of the fundamental values at the University is inclusivity and fairness. As such it is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status. It also addresses prejudice, or discrimination that persons within the LGBTQ+ community may encounter. As a research university, it aims to foster dialogue and promote understanding to combat ignorance and promote acceptance.
