This week we are celebrating an anniversary: The hundredth "Welcome Package" for the birth of a child of members of our university has been sent!
Since May 2018, university members have received a congratulatory card and a high-quality baby bib with an embroidered Uni Passau logo when they notify the university of the birth of their child by birth certificate.
Employees should contact the relevant office in the Human Resources Department and students should contact the Family Service in the Diversity and Equality Department.
What is it like to unexpectedly become parents in the middle of your studies?
Students Marie-Louisa Emde and Alexander Herbort talk about the initial horror of the unexpected news, getting in the mood for their child and how they mastered their law studies together as a family - in Corona times and before.
Bianca Weller-Braunbart from the AlumniClub conducts the interview. She also asks Marie-Helene Wünsch from the Family Service of the Diversity and Equality Department what support the University of Passau offers, what rights student parents have and what they can do themselves to successfully complete their studies even with a child.
You can find the link to the podcast on the AlumniClub-website.
