Certificate family-friendly university

Ulm University received its initial certificate as family-friendly university on 24 November 2008. Since then, the University has been successfully re-audited on a regular basis. The last audit was on 15 December 2017. The berufundfamilie GmbH reviews the practical implementation. Every three years, further goals can be stipulated as part of a re-audit. Ulm University is only allowed to keep the unmodified certificate upon a successful re-audit. The University pledges to carry out a family-conscious staff policy and to continuously keep working on reconciling family and studies/work.
