Equal opportunities and diversity

Halmstad University is a University working actively for equal opportunities and diversity. The work is founded on democratic values and respect for human rights. Employees as well as students at the University should have the same rights and opportunities to work, study and undergo personal development regardless of gender, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or functional handicaps.

Halmstad University's guiding principle is that the background, knowledge, expertise and experience of the employees and students all contribute to quality enhancement which influences and enriches the development of knowledge in the community. Equal opportunity and diversity work should permeate through all business operations at the University and any form of discrimination or harassment is unacceptable.

These basic values, the University's mission statement together with the relevant Acts of Parliament and ordinances provide the basis for the University's Policy for Equal Opportunities and diversity covering the period 2004-2007. The University has also set up a council for equal opportunities and diversity work, the Council for Equal Opportunities and Diversity, which acts as an advisory body reporting to the Vice-chancellor.
