Increased diversity and equality is something beneficial to everyone. The purpose of the Equal opportunity work is for everybody to feel comfortable and welcome regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, religion or belief or disability.
Among other things the SLU personnel policy says: 'The human being is the most important resource for the SLU so that we can make our university's vision and goals come true. The principle of sustainable use also has its relevance in the working career.'
All work promoting equality and diversity is gathered under the title Equal opportunities and includes both staff and students at SLU. The work is conducted at three levels: central, the faculty and at the department. We have also chosen to cooperate as much as possible within the MVM-Center.
