The idea of the Citizens' University thrives on Participation. Without the Commitment of Students, Academics, Staff and the Interest of Citizens and many other People from Politics, Business, Culture and Civil Society, the Steps taken so far on the way to a Citizens' University could not have been taken.
There are numerous Opportunities to become involved in the Citizens' University on the campus of the HHU or in the City. Here you can find out how and where this is possible - broken down by your point of view. If you do not find the Information you are looking for, please contact the Team at the Citizens' University Office and we will be happy to help you.
The easiest way to get involved in the Citizens' University is to take part in Discussion and Dialogue Events.
