The idea of the campus family
The whole is more than the sum of its parts.
In Ilmenau, we have coined the term campus family, which symbolically stands for the vision of a global family and a lived university culture characterised by shared values such as trust, openness, mutual respect, intercultural tolerance and diversity."
With our work, we want to focus on people, on a culture of living together without discrimination. A culture in which common values are promoted and conditions are created that enable respectful and appreciative interaction with one another.
With the staff unit, a structural unit was created at the TU Ilmenau that supports the implementation of the mission formulated in the mission statement, creates the corresponding framework conditions for implementation and develops demand-oriented measures.. Our work creates the conditions for reconciling different areas of life, for dealing with international, intercultural and sexual diversity and for the continuous and accompanying adaptation of work and communication structures to the high performance-oriented requirements. With our work, we would like to make a contribution to making existing barriers visible and overcoming them, and to create free spaces for community togetherness at the university.
