Family & Diversity

Friedrich Schiller University is committed to the concept of gender mainstreaming and pursuing the goal of equal opportunities and equality for women and men as a strategic management responsibility and university-wide task. A substantial part of this is the support of appropriate gender- and family-friendly working conditions.

Therefore, the GA closely cooperates with the FSU family office and the Studentenwerk Thüringen. For the implementation of the DFG's "research oriented standards on gender equality" FSU holds the highest valuation level in 2013 (level 4). Since 2008, the FSU has been a member of the best practice club "Familie in der Hochschule" of the Robert Bosch Foundation. Further, the FSU has been repeatedly awarded with the Total E-Quality certificate (2008, 2011) and is a founding member of the Jenaer Bündnis für Familie (Jena alliance for family).
