Charter of diversity
The Charter of Diversity is an initiative to promote appreciation of all members of society - regardless of gender, age, race and color, sexual orientation, religion and belief, and physical or mental disability. The Charter of Diversity is a public, voluntary commitment. It is based on the recognition that diversity is an essential feature of Europe - its history as well as its society. It sees and appreciates the benefits and opportunities that diversity offers.
CUAS was founded in 1995 in the legal form of an association as a carrier of the University of Applied Sciences study programs in Carinthia. The seat of the association was in Spittal an der Drau. Since the beginning of 2002, the University of Carinthia - Charitable Private Foundation has been the sponsor and maintainer of the University of Applied Sciences degree programs.
The private foundation is financed by contributions from the federal government, the state of Carinthia, and the communities of Villach, Spittal / Drau, Klagenfurt, and Feldkirchen. In addition, the membership fees of the association, which has become one of the 15 founders, as well as donations and proceeds from events, contribute to the financing of the operation of the organization.
The link between employee and employer
We are not only responsible for our actions, but also for what we do not do. (Moliere)
The works council is the link between the employees and the employer. The task is to act as a mediator, but also to act as a one-stop-shop. The current works council team harmonizes complements itself well and is eager to implement the concerns for all colleagues positively.
An elected works council can - based on the solidarity within the workforce - actively and consistently address and represent the concerns of its colleagues. In addition to the "core business," the representation of the staff towards the employer CUAS, the works council, also takes care of the promotion of the economic, social, health, and cultural interests of the employees.
