Protests in Iran Technische Universität Braunschweig condemns violence at Iranian universities

On October 4, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) issued the following statement on the situation in Iran: “The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) condemns the violence against students and university staff who are peacefully demonstrating in Tehran and other cities in the country.” The German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) came up with a similar statement about events at Iranian universities. The Technical University of Braunschweig sees itself as an open-minded institution and joins these statements. There are numerous students and scientists at our University who come from Iran.

We understand that many of you are psychologically affected by the current situation in your home country. If you need help, please contact the psychotherapeutic counseling service of the Studierendenwerk.

Other support services are being explored, including the establishment of a central contact point to help with questions and concerns.
