Equal access at UID

It is important for us at UID to maintain a positive and productive work environment, free of harassment or discrimination. As an employer and an education provider we have an obligation to oppose harassment and discrimination or any other unequal treatment on our premises. Everyone at UID should feel that they are treated equally and have the same opportunities as everyone else. It means that all people should be treated similarly and not be hindered by artificial barriers, prejudices or preferences.

The responsibility for equal access issues at UID lies with the rectors' group, with support from the Equal access representatives at UID. All staff and all students have the responsibility to inform themselves about, and follow, the rules, guidelines and practices relating to equal access issues that are established at Umeå Institute of Design and Umeå University.

During the study year, equal access issues are discussed and handled at School meetings, Staff meetings, in the Equal access group, and in the EHS group. At the Local cooperation group before the Decision meeting, issues of equal access are always raised.
