Equal opportunities for students

Lund University and LTH has a zero tolerance approach to discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and victimisation. Diversity, equal opportunities and gender equality among students contribute to a positive work environment and high quality in all activities. The Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, LTH, is responsible for compliance with gender equality, equal opportunities and diversity measures. The Subject Area Managers and Heads of Department have the operational responsibility for an environment free from harassment and discrimination. 

The Student Welfare Council is a preparatory body for the Management Group for Undergraduate Education, who works proactively to ensure that all students studying at the faculty of Engineering feel included and have the same rights, obligations and opportunities in their studies. The Student Welfare Council works systematically by conducting a psychosocial work and study environment survey every second year, which is sent via e-mail to all students at the faculty. The responses we receive are analyzed, an action plan is drawn up and the work that follows helps us in our work on preventive measures.

Student Ombudsman at Lund University Student Unions (Student Ombudsman's website)

In Sweden, there is an authority called the Equality Ombudsman (DO). DO works against discrimination and for everyone's equal rights and opportunities. The authority does this mainly by ensuring that the Discrimination Act is complied with. DO's work applies to all grounds of discrimination. If you have made a report but believe that the university has not done enough, you can get help from the DO to take the matter further. The DO's website contains information and advice on discrimination.
