Campus life at the Medical University of Graz is diverse and dynamic. The uniqueness of our students and staff contributes to the spirit at Med Uni Graz. As a matter of course, our university strives to avoid barriers and cultivate an open and tolerant environment.

WORK-LIFE BALANCE

As a university certified with the "universityandfamily" audit, we find the reconciliation of work/studies and family to be an item of great importance and offer a variety of programs that prioritize it. We are also working on new ideas and ways that our entire university community can succeed in meeting the diverse requirements of work, studies and family life in the future.

GENDER & DIVERSITY

The Gender:Unit was established at our university to coordinate the areas gender equality, advancement of women and diversity management. It offers a variety of services that aim to achieve equal working and living conditions for members of the university community. A wide range of professional development courses and coaching provide comprehensive education and information in the university sector.

CHILD CARE

At kinderCAMPUS, the Med Uni Graz child care facility, our university staff can find the right program for their children. Depending on their situation and needs, staff have the choice of a day nursery, a kindergarten as well as care by day parents (Betriebstageseltern). Our diverse programs and projects should arouse a child's curiosity, encourage critical thinking, imagination and creativity and make it fun to learn, research, and discover.

RECONCILIATION OF WORK, STUDIES AND FAMILY

We believe successful work-life balance is a criterion for quality in university research, teaching and administration. The Servicestelle für Vereinbarkeit von Universität und Familie (Service Center for Reconciliation of University and Family) offers information, lectures, workshops, and advising related to child care, family leave, dual careers and care for dependents.

PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES OR ILLNESSES

Raising awareness and providing information are high on our list of priorities. That is why we have not only a disability ombudsperson and a service center for people with disabilities and/or chronic disease but also an advisory council for people with disabilities. The service center offers information and support in the areas of work, study and disability.
