Universities have been looking for sustainable models to create family-friendly working and studying conditions for a number of years.
To this end, the family-friendly University audit was created by the NGO Hertie Foundation together with the University of Trier.
Its goal is to achieve a balance between the interests of universities and the family commitments of students and staff.
Since 2006, Esslingen University of Applied Sciences has been recognized as a family-friendly university. Later re-audits were carried out in 2009, 2012 and 2017. In 2017, the University’s certificate was extended for a further three years.
