The "family-friendly university audit" certificate issued by berufundfamilie gGmbH was awarded to the University of Tübingen on March 15, 2014. The aim is to optimise and expand family-friendly structures within the next years, as the compatibility of work/study with family responsibilities is a central cornerstone of a future-oriented university aiming for equal opportunities. The target agreements, the measures and partial targets as well as further information on the audit can be found on the pages of the family office.
