Vilnius University follows Vilnius University Diversity and Equal Opportunities Strategy 2020–2025. The aim of the strategy is to create a study and work environment at the University that promotes individual, social and cultural diversity and ensures equal opportunities for members of the University’s community. 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.

Trust Line

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.
