Equal opportunity for students 

Linnaeus University, as all providers of education, has investigative responsibility, i.e., a liability to promptly investigate suspicions of negative special treatment or discrimination. As a first step, the issue should be dealt with internally at the faculty, department, or unit in question, in accordance with the manager's responsibility for the working environment.

What should I do if I experience negative special treatment or discrimination?

Get in touch with someone you have confidence in, either by word of mouth or in writing. For instance, you can get into contact with your teacher/lecturer, programme coordinator, head of department, safety representative, or any other employee that you have confidence in. Linnéstudenterna (the student union) also have student and doctoral student representatives that you can get in touch with.

You can also choose to go directly to the Equality Ombudsman or the Anti-discrimination bureau in Kalmar for support.
