Family-friendly university audit

To qualify, universities have to agree objectives in eight fields of action and implement measures
within three years. Objectives include, for instance, introducing flexible working hours for
academic and supporting staff; preparation of a guide on maternity protection and parental leave
for all staff at TU Braunschweig by the HR department; extending childcare schemes; and setting
up academic expert groups on the topic “family-friendly university“. We aim to provide active and
continued support to students and staff with family duties, allowing them to successfully combine
higher education as a place of work and study with their family life.
