Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences Berlin

Introduction

Our university has a unique profile that results, in part, from its intriguing history and long tradition. This is a place where diversity and gender mainstreaming, health promotion and a pro-family environment receive high priority, as do cultural activities and international exchange.

The university is also firmly anchored in national and international networks in the areas of academia, research and the professional world.

On the following pages we will introduce you to the features that give the Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences its distinctive character.

Creating lively cooperation

Lively cooperation among (professional) associations, agencies and organizations is a characteristic feature of the successful transfer from theory to practice and of the research-intense application-oriented institution of higher education. For instance, the Fröbel Group finances an endowed chair in the Early Childhood Education programme at ASH Berlin. University teachers engage in joint research with childcare facilities or partner universities to examine current questions of social or health policy or issues relating to early childhood education. Students, too, through their internship semesters and volunteer work, some of which takes place in Hellersdorf, make valuable contributions to the exchange between science and professional practice. Within the framework of the “ASH Builds Potential” mentoring programme, students take on mentoring roles for other students or school pupils with immigrant backgrounds.

Regular lecture series within the bachelors and masters programmes represent an opportunity to participate in in-depth discussions on a range of topics. That opportunity is not limited to university members: interested professional colleagues from outside the university also take up the invitation to take part in the lively exchange of opinions at the university. In a variety of ways, the Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences, Berlin, contributes to the development of professional practices and specialist discourse, exerting a sustainable influence on its region.

Academic inquiry in dialogue with professional practice

Research is an integral part of the development of higher education. ASH Berlin supports the research activities of its teachers and is the recipient of considerable external funding. ASH Berlin students participate in research projects and are qualified to pursue independent research right up to the acquisition of a doctoral degree. ASH Berlin is engaged in continual and productive dialogue with professionals in the field, thereby ensuring that its research activities are application-oriented and relevant to professional practice. At the same time, it is contributing to the innovative advancement of established practice. The results of ASH Berlin research are released in numerous publications.

To promote regional development, since September of 2009, the Institute for Applied Research (Institut für angewandte Forschung e. V. – IFAF) has chiefly supported joint research activities involving Berlin’s public universities of applied sciences. ASH Berlin is the home of the IFAF’s “Integration and Health” competence centre: the centre promotes cross-linkage of research associated with that area being pursued by the partner institutions and the integration of regional partners.
