At the turn of November and December, the second part of the university-wide study “Being a parent at UW” will begin. The study is addressed to people working and studying at the University of Warsaw.

Ladies and Gentlemen,


I cordially encourage all members of our university community to take part in the university-wide survey “Being a parent at UW” addressed to persons working and studying at the UW. The study is conducted by the UW’s Equality Team in cooperation with PEJK and the Centre for Women’s and Gender Research.


The aim of the study is to collect your experiences, opinions and expectations regarding support for parents at the UW. The result of the study will be the creation of recommendations and the implementation of specific solutions that will help in reconciliation of work, family and private life. The survey is addressed to both parents and non-parents.


Understanding your needs and expectations will help us take effective actions aimed at strengthening professional and parental opportunities, and will also contribute to making the UW a friendly place that responds to the needs of its community and supports the work-life balance policy.


Your voice is of great importance, so I once again encourage you to participate in the survey.


Prof. Alojzy Z. Nowak

Rector of the University of Warsaw

Study of the needs of parents

In the previous academic year, in-depth interviews with various groups of the UW community were conducted. At the turn of November and December, a university-wide survey will be carried out. It will include an analysis of, among others, experiences of barriers and difficulties in combining professional and student life with family life. The ideas and good practices on how to improve the situation will be considered.


The survey is addressed to both parents and non-parents. It will be available in Polish and English. The link to the survey will be sent by e-mail, and it will be possible to complete it using the USOS account.
