association "family in university"

Family at the University registered association

The KIT is a member of the “Family at the University registered association” where universities handle projects in the interest of more family orientation

The successful association of universities in the “Family at the University registered association” is a unique network of universities created in 2008 which is characterized by a nationwide dialog and activities pursued in a spirit of partnership among equals. All member universities have a record of many years of initiation and implementation of measures making universities more family orientated. Together with the Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung (CHE), this initiative has worked out a charter bearing the same title on the subject of compatibility of family duties with study courses, teaching, research, and activities supporting science at German universities.

A family-oriented profile can add to the attractiveness of universities to students, employees, teachers, and researchers. The right framework helps students to find more acceptance in their study courses and thus contributes greatly to a successful university career. At the same time, creating a family-oriented working environment helps reach the strategic objective of being a university attractive to young scientists.

In 2019, Sarah Wenz represented the KIT at the annual meeting. Here you can watch the aftermovie of the event.
