The integral development of all the people who form part of the university community is a fundamental objective of our institution. To this end, for years the University of Cantabria has been promoting policies to reconcile
work, academic and personal life so that student and professional tasks can be carried out in a balanced way with other facets of life.
Thus, the Concilia Plan
, the Infant School
and the regular organisation of Children's Campuses
during holiday periods facilitate the exercise of maternity and paternity, contributing to the promotion of joint responsibility between women and men.
The Concilia Plan, launched in 2007 by the University of Cantabria and managed by the Management Unit, integrates the legal regulations and policies that regulate the working day and flexible working hours, measures to be applied in the event of the birth or adoption of children, to facilitate childcare and the care of dependent persons, to promote the exercise of lifelong learning, as well as to offer comprehensive protection against gender-based violence.
This plan develops the Cantabria Law 2/2019, of 7 March, for the effective equality between women and men as well as one of the lines of action of the Strategic Plan of the University of Cantabria 2019-2023, which establishes the implementation of conciliation measures to favour the professional and curricular promotion of all UC staff as well as the need to strengthen conciliation and co-responsibility policies.
The Concilia Plan is periodically reviewed and updated in the General Negotiating Committee of the University of Cantabria. UPDATE: Plan Concilia (Agreement of the General Negotiating Committee of 23 May 2019)
