Doc­u­ment­a­tion of a study on child­care needs at Pader­born Uni­ver­sity

University members with children face particular problems when it comes to juggling their work/studies and family. For this reason, Paderborn University conducted a survey to document the need for childcare at the university. The study examined how university staff and students rate the range of childcare available, how they organise their responsibilities and the difficulties parents face. It also gathered information on what university members would like to see and their suggestions for improvement to change the situation at the university for the better.
