The University of Hildesheim Foundation emerged from the Teacher’s Training University of Lower Saxony (founded in 1946), and currently has four divisions: “Educational and Social Sciences,” “Cultural Studies and Aesthetic Communication,” “Linguistics and Information Science,” and “Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Economics and Computer Science”. The number of students enrolled at the University of Hildesheim has increased steadily since 2000 to approximately 7,500 in Winter Semester of 2015/16, of which 73 % are female. Women also comprise 43 % of the faculty, above the national average. Indeed, gender equality, and equal treatment for those from different social, ethnic and religious backgrounds, as well as educational integration in general, are important parts of the university’s mission.
