Equal opportunities for students

Lund University and LTH has a zero tolerance approach to discrimination, 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. 

LTH works systematically, including through an annual psychosocial work and study environment survey which is sent via e-mail to all students at the faculty. The responses we receive help us in our work on preventive measures. In the brochure LTH – A Place for Everyone, you will find information, guidance and support in case you find yourself in a situation where you feel victimised or harassed.

Other contacts

The Student Ombudsman offers advice and support when you encounter problems related to your studies.

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.
