Charter on Diversity and Inclusion

Share Charter on Diversity and Inclusion

Unite!, a pioneering European university alliance, has published their Charter for Diversity and Inclusion.

Unite! is aware of its social responsibilities to provide extensive accessibility to and fair opportunities within higher education, as well as its impact on the shaping of future leaders in a globalised society. Unite! is deeply committed to promoting diversity and strengthening the process of inclusion in all its operations.

Based on the respective strategies and regulations of the Unite! partner universities, this charter specifies their shared efforts to maintain a safe and unbiased environment for exchange, research, work and study. Each partner’s own guidelines, measures and strategies remain unaffected by this charter and continue to apply in accordance with their respective directives.

This charter applies to all, i.e. faculty, staff, students, guests and external partners, who work and participate in any of Unite!’s various activities. The entire Unite! community is very strongly committed to cultivating a climate of mutual respect and preventing and decisively opposing (direct and indirect) discrimination of any kind within this joint project.

Diversity is a key guiding value for Unite! We are convinced that our shared differences are an essential component of international and democratic cooperation and further, are a fundamental accelerator of social change and innovation. Therefore, we strive to ensure and maintain an environment that not only celebrates and welcomes diversity, but also offers opportunities and chances for personal growth and fulfillment regardless of individual differences.

Universidade de Lisboa (ULisboa) is one of seven European Higher Education Institutions integrating Unite!. This Alliance also includes Aalto University (Finland), the KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), the Grenoble Institute of Technology (France), the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy), the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Spain) and TU Darmstadt (Germany).

Unite! (University Network for Innovation, Technology and Engineering) is an Alliance of European Universities, in which ULisboa is part of. It aims to lead the transformation of the European Education Area through a new generation of Europeans, committed to cross-border, transdisciplinary and multilingual cooperation, whom are able to face the great societal challenges, while contributing to Europe’s leadership as an area of knowledge.
