Equal Treatment at SLU

Last changed: 07 January 2019

Here you can find out what is meant by Equal treatment and Equal opportunities. There is also information about who to contact if you are mistreated in connection with your studies at SLU.

SLU has a special organisation for Equal opportunities, which covers both students and staff. Here the university coordinates its work on the equal treatment of students, equality, diversity and accessibility for people with disabilities. More information about Equal opportunities work at SLU can be found on the staff web.

SLU has an Equal opportunities action plan, with ongoing tasks for the departments and various divisions within the university administration. An important part of this is to spread information about Equal opportunities issues to students and staff. The plan also contains specific measures to be implemented during the year, which are followed up in the following year’s plan.

Equal treatment issues for students are something that is also looked after by the Student welfare council (STRÅ) at SLU. Questions about whether you have experienced discrimination in connection with your education are included in the student welfare surveys, which are followed up by STRÅ.

SLU has produced a brochure aimed at work placement contacts and external supervisors. The Discrimination Act also applies when you are on placement or are doing an independent project and have an external supervisor. You should not be subjected to harassment, such as on the grounds of ethnicity or sexual harassment, in these situations.

The Faculty of Forest Sciences has produced some special information material which refers specifically to equal treatment between males and females.
