Happy International Day of Families

The 15th of May is celebrated as the international day of families each year and was proclaimed by the UN to point to the importance of families.

For this purpose, also the UAS Upper Austria seeks to highlight the significance of family friendliness and the balance between family, work and/or studies. This day is intended to raise awareness for the dynamic diversity of different forms of living together but it also stresses the family concept as a vital resource and most crucial fundamental unit of society.

It is in this spirit then that the UAS Upper Austria has committed itself to taking numerous steps to become even more family-friendly over the following three years which is why we have been awarded the certificate of a family-friendly university in April 2016. Hence, we direct all our efforts towards the well-being of our students and staff for the sake of a family-friendly work and study environment.
