Take part in the virtual "TUM VALUES" exhibition

What are the values of our university?

What are our values? What matters most to us, what do we want to achieve? The TUM VALUES campaign explores and provides examples of the personal attitudes and values that are brought to life at TUM – what drives and inspires the people here, what gives them strength and makes them happy, and what means most to them.

Diversity of personalities at TUM

TUM VALUES is a campaign by the TUM Gender Equality Officer. The campaign aims to promote value-oriented discourse at TUM while raising the profile of value-based activity in the TUM community. It is based on video interviews featuring the following four questions:

  1. What matters most to you?
  2. What makes you happy?
  3. What do you want to achieve with your studies / your work / your research / your teaching?
  4. Which female scientists or women in general have inspired you?

TUM Gender Equality Officer Dr. Eva Sandmann: “I’d like to thank everyone who answered our interview questions with openness, with a heart, and in a spirit of self-reflection! Values in particular require frequent reflection to help us gain our own understanding of where our actions are rooted."

She adds: "Of course people live their values in various ways. We should respect this and be prepared to adopt different viewpoints. TUM is a diverse place but there is still so much that we have in common.”

Become part of the campaign

Do you want to join the campaign? Due to the current situation, we cannot record video interviews. However, you can submit your own video. Or write answers to the four questions and tell us about the value that means the most to you personally and how it has impacted your choice of profession, your decisions or your life goals.

You can also attach a photo if you wish. With your consent, we will post your content on the campaign website.
