DoProfiL "stands for the Dortmund Profile for Inclusion-Oriented Teacher Training and focuses on research and teaching at the university for inclusion." The purpose of the DoProfiL related projects is to understand their various personal backgrounds of pupils - such as level of achievement, learning impairments, immigration or migration experience - in the classroom. "Children should meet teachers who are prepared for their diversity and promote it accordingly."

The DoProfiL project is accompanied by workshops with renowned speakers. Fr. Peter Balleis SJ is the Executive President of Jesuit Worldwide Learning, which is a global organization providing online tertiary education programs to refugees and underserved communities. Fr Balleis studied philosophy and theology after graduating from high school in Munich.  His experience is built on 30 years of international and intercultural experiences through worldwide humanitarian work for the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) and International Jesuit Mission in more than 50 countries across Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.
