Family and Work

The balance between work and life is taken seriously at the TU Clausthal. Since 2007, family orientation has been laid down in the mission statement and implemented within university life. Nevertheless, there is of course still a need for action. The Family Service Agency seeks to improve continually the daily reconciliation of work and family at the TU Clausthal and respond to the needs of TU employees with family responsibilities.

Family Friendly University - what's that?


"More and more companies and universities recognize that a family-friendly personnel policy is a success factor for growth and competitiveness." (Ursula von der Leyen, Former German Family Minister)

Therefore, a principle aim of the Technical University (TU) Clausthal is to be a family-friendly university. On 19 June 2007, the TU Clausthal was awarded for the "Family Friendly University" Elementary Certificate in Berlin. In a multi-year process, which is also known as auditing, the University intends to implement measures agreed upon and thus prove its family-oriented approach.


After a successful session of Re-Auditing, in May 2010, the TU Clausthal was awarded for the certificate of "Family Friendly University" for a period of further three years again. On June 26, 2013, in Berlin, the TU Clausthal was awarded the certificate of "Family Friendly University" for another three years.

Since June 2013, Dr. Georg Frischmann, as the Executive Vice-President, has taken over the issue of family-friendly university in his portfolio.

Furthermore, the TU Clausthal is a member of Charta "Family in the University" an the is to live family friendliness.

The Family Service Agency is the first point of contact for students and employees with a family. Since 2012, it has been located in the Equal Opportunity Office. The Service Agency provides information and advice and, if required, forwards the request to other services.
