KIT Representative for Students
with Disabilities and Chronic Diseases
Equal opportunities does not mean that everyone can pick an apple,
but that the dwarf is given a ladder. (Reinhard Turre)
I am the contact person for prospective students, students, and KIT members regarding studying with disabilities, chronic diseases, and specific developmental disorders.
Please schedule appointments in advance (see infobox on the right)
Telephone consultation is possible.
The consultation is confidential.
Angelika Scherwitz-Gallegos, Person-centered Consultant (GwG), Coach and Supervisor (GwG, DGSv)
Professional consulting focuses on people and their concerns in a positive and appreciative way.
The commissioner advises in a resource-oriented and supportive way in the search for solutions to individual needs caused by impairments.
She accompanies the process of exploiting possibilities within the existing framework in a solution-oriented way and encourages new steps.
She aims to create awareness of the discourse on diversity and inclusion and offers opportunities for reflection.
The goal is a development towards more inclusive studies and better participation of students with disabilities.
From May 2020 on Carissima Pietsch and Mark Obinwanne will support the representative as well as students with disabilities. The common goal is to work for an inclusive university life at KIT.
