The University of Münster – A certified family-friendly university

The University of Münster has been a recognised “family-friendly university” since its initial certification in June 2008.
As part of the auditing process and in collaboration with all university groups, administrators have implemented many minor and major changes to improve the compatibility of professional or academic pursuits and family life for staff and students at the University.

In the current re-certification process, the University of Münster aims to demonstrate its continued commitment to being a family-friendly university. The University wants to replace the notion of “working and studying despite having children” with the more positive idea of “working and studying while raising children”, and thereby anchor and continue improving family-friendly conditions in the work, research and academic environment.
