Diversity Management, Inclusion & Family Friendliness

Diversity Management, Inclusion & Family Friendliness

The Kufstein University of Applied Sciences’ mission statement is based on measures involving several social dimensions. The mission statement includes the commitment to living the university’s international network and diversity and promotes the understanding of people from different cultures. At the core of the work carried out at the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences is our effort to support students through personal and individual assistance. It is a key concern embedded in a university community based on mutual respect, appreciation and nondiscrimination. We know that each of our university’s members find themselves in different situations. That is why nondiscriminatory access to education, the best possible studying and working environment and a good social framework are of utmost importance.

Inclusion

The topic of inclusion focuses, on the one hand, on nondiscriminatory access to education for all people regardless of physical disabilities or chronic/mental illness. We aim at providing to all students and applicants studying conditions at the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences that are optimal for them. On the other hand, inclusion also deals with impaired teachers and other members of staff.

A Family-Friendly University of Applied Sciences

The Kufstein University of Applied Sciences aims at providing good social conditions for both staff and students to allow them more easily to reconcile studying, working and having a family. In 2012 and again in 2015, the university was awarded the certificate for hochschuleundfamilie of the Federal Ministry for Family and Youth.

Gender Mainstreaming & Diversity Management

Diversity management deals with integrating diversity into the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences and with nondiscrimination regardless of someone’s origin, nationality, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, skin color or disability. Gender mainstreaming focuses on gender equality and support for women. The Kufstein University of Applied Sciences aims at providing to all members of the university a campus of diversity and equality on which discrimination does not need to be discussed as it simply does not exist.

Cross-thematic actions

In order to show diversity in a lively way and to draw attention to this important topic area in everyday university life, the FH Kufstein Tirol has created an annual event series: Diversity matters. Under this event title, student projects make new interpretations of diversity visible on campus every year.
