The University of Eastern Finland is an accessible studying and working environment.
Accessibility refers to a physical, mental and social environment where everyone, regardless of their personal characteristics, can act and interact equally with others.
We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment or bullying.
Discrimination is defined as the different treatment of an individual or a group of people on the basis of his/her or their background. Harassment and inappropriate treatment refer to behaviour that violates the law, agreements or good manners.
Students are treated equally at all stages of their study path.
This is sought to be achieved by, e.g., introducing electronic entrance examinations, developing the university's learning environments and taking students' individual needs into consideration.
Staff members are treated equally and they have equal opportunities.
This is sought to be achieved by investigating and introducing various measures that support and encourage women's career advancement, and by making sure that the division of responsibilities and career advancement are based on skills, achievements and equal distribution of workloads.
