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.
