Based on the Strategic Plan of Vilnius University 2018–2020, the strategic project “Openness to Equality and Diversity” is being carried out to develop community-motivating conditions for staff and students. The project aims at creating a long-term strategy for diversity and equal opportunities in the University and at implementing its key provisions with regard to staff and students. The University seeks to promote diversity and ensure equal opportunities for all regardless of gender, race, nationality, citizenship, language, origin, social status, faith, beliefs, convictions, age, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, family status, intention to have a child (children) or any other grounds of discrimination.
The Community Development Department of the Central Administration is responsible for the formulation of measures of the equal opportunities policy at the University. One of the goals of the unit is to ensure equal opportunities for the University’s community members.
Vilnius University diversity and equal opportunities
The University seeks to develop and ensure an organisational culture that enables everyone to feel safe and accepted, to foster his/her individuality and to realise his/her potential. Each of us has a responsibility not to, through actions and words, contribute to creating a hostile environment for an individual person or a group.
If you have experienced or witnessed sexual harassment as well as discrimination based on gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity or any other basis of discrimination, we encourage you to report it to the Trust Line. Each case will be investigated by experts in their field, guaranteeing complete confidentiality.
