Family-friendly actions enable our researchers with families to plan their careers more reliably and provide an optimal working environment. In 2014, TU Dortmund University signed the charter "Family in Higher Education" and is thus a member of the best practice club of the same name.

As part of the Family Service, the Staff Unit Equal Opportunity, Family and Diversity will advise you on all matters relating to nursery/kindergarten places, schools and other childcare options, among other things. Dr. Verena Schmied and Daniel Müller are available and happy to take care of your needs and questions and establish direct contact with the Family Service.
