The Discrimination Act promotes equal rights and combats discrimination in higher education on grounds of gender, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other beliefs, disability, sexual orientation and age. The Discrimination Act also covers sexual harassment.

The Discrimination Act applies to harassment of students by University employees and harassment of students by other students. Harassment may involve anything from unwelcome remarks and verbal abuse to serious assaults. Harassment of any kind, based on any ground of discrimination or of a sexual nature, is unacceptable and is not tolerated at Stockholm University.

Should you feel that you have been subjected to harassment, contact someone at your department that you have confidence in or the Coordinator for Equal Treatment of Students at Stockholm University who can carry out an investigation of the circumstances.

Stockholm University makes an annual plan for equal rights and opportunities of students and prospective students.
