Since 2010 the Hochschule Niederrhein has been certified by the family-friendly higher education audit. Its priority is to provide long-term opportunities in different areas of activity to create positive
framework conditions and provide support for employees and students to help them achieve a healthy balance between work/studies and family commitments.
In this respect, existing and well-established initiatives which focus on improving this balance are promoted, and new, requirement-based solutions are developed and tested. The university also actively advocates equal opportunities and gender-inclusive studying and working conditions.
