KNU and the Universitätskolleg
KNU Team 2 (Sustainability in Teaching and Learning) connects the Center for a Sustainable University to the Universitätskolleg, founded in 2012. One of the team's main tasks is to support and advise the Universitätskolleg.
Under the title of “Bridges to University—Pathways to Academia” and financed by the Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the Quality Pact for Teaching (site in German),the Universitätskolleg is an umbrella organization for numerous projects that help people transition from school or a job to university study and acquire the skills they need in academia. There are many challenges facing people in the educational system, such as shorter periods of schooling (from 9 to 8 years) and the conversion of the German higher education system to a bachelor's/master's system.
