Respect is a fundamental value of our university. In its charter, it guarantees its members respect for fundamental human rights. UNIL wishes to promote a healthy, inclusive and non-discriminatory working and study climate, allowing each member of the university community to feel respected, to develop and to mobilise their skills to ensure the success of their study, research and/or professional projects. Racial discrimination is not tolerated.
The Equal Opportunities Office supports actions to reduce racial discrimination at the structural, institutional and individual levels. It is at the disposal of the services, faculties and associations of UNIL to support measures and projects aimed at preventing discrimination and raising awareness of the issue in the academic world. It can also offer its support to anyone who considers himself or herself a victim of discrimination.
The Equal Opportunities Office, in partnership with various associations present on the UNIL campus, organizes a week of events against racial discrimination. It will take place from 16 to 20 March 2020, on the eve of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 21 March.
