Welcome to the KIT Family Portal
"The family is a social network. It includes not only the core family but also single mothers and fathers, relationships other than marriage and same-sex relationships, patchwork and foster families. The family concept thus also comprises all types of permanent intergenerational life together and the acceptance of responsibility for each other."
(KIT Family Concept elaborated within the “Audit of Universities Suitable for Families.”)
The KIT, as an employer and a place of university studies, considers it its duty to look after the needs of its employees and students. Working fathers and mothers face the very special challenge of devoting equal attention to their work and to family life as well as to child care. Students who must simultaneously master the education of and care for their children have to make a tremendous effort. All this takes organizational skills, stamina, but also perseverance.
To provide our employees and students with all important information about the compatibility of studies, work, and family, we developed the Family Portal. This is where KIT staff members will find all information associated with family matters. Besides current developments in family-orientedness of the KIT, the Family Portal also shows how to find the right contact.
