The University as Employer
It is just as important for the university to reconcile studying with family and children as it is to reconcile family and career. For this reason, both students and employees are supported with various offers, information and advice. Together with 46 other universities and institutions of higher education, the University of Augsburg made a binding and public commitment to more family-friendliness in 2014 and signed the "Family in Higher Education" charter ( Charta "Familie in der Hochschule"). The central point of contact on the subject is the Family Service ( Familienservice).
