Equal opportunities are a matter of rights for the individual and quality for the University. An equal opportunities perspective must be mainstreamed in all parts of the organisation and the University’s study and work environments must be characterised by openness och respect.
The above paragraph can be found in Uppsala University: Mission, Goals and Strategies.
Fairness and quality
Uppsala University is a place of work and study for over 50,000 people, a population equivalent to a small Swedish town. all students and employees must be met with an environment characterised by respect and understanding, regardless of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, functional diversity, sexual orientation or age. For us, this is obvious. It is a matter of both fairness and quality. We work systematically to ensure we have the conditions for everyone to be able to work and study with us on equal terms.
