The perspective of equality is present in all TREY’s operations and statements. TREY advocates for gender equality, accessibility and equal treatment for all kinds of people at the university. TREY also organises equality training for the association players operating within TREY.

The student union has a representative in the university’s equality committee, where we make sure that the student perspective is considered in the university’s equality work.

In all questions concerning the university or the student union’s equality, contact the the Specialist in Social Affairs or the equality organiser of TREY’s board. TREY also has harassment contact persons who can provide confidential support in cases of bullying, discrimination or harassment. More information about harassment contact persons can be found on TREYs website here.

Accessibility

According to the Universities Act (558/2009 Section 37a) and the Non-discrimination Act (1325/2014 Section 15), students have a right for reasonable adjustments so that their state of health or ability to function do not become obstacles in their studies or in obtaining services. You can direct your questions and requests about exam and lecture arrangements and other special arrangements to the university’s accessibility contact person. TREY is an advocate for you in these questions as well; don’t hesitate to contact us if you need advice or support!

Accessibility is an important value for TREY. We aim for all student union events and meetings to be organised in accessible facilities. TREY’s Specialist in Social Affairs will answer questions about the accessibility of the student union’s operations and would gladly hear your comments and experiences. The contact information for all TREY officers can be found on this website.

Harassment and discrimination

The student union is an equal community in which we intervene in harassment, bullying and other types of inappropriate treatment.

All students regardless of age, nationality, ethnicity, skin colour, gender, sexuality, state of health, ability to function, beliefs, family situation or socioeconomic background are equal members of the student union. Any kind of discrimination based on a person’s characteristics will not be accepted.

In general, harassment includes creating an atmosphere that is threatening, aggressive, derogatory or demeaning. Sexual harassment is also a form of harassment, but harassment can also be associated with other basis of discrimination.

The student union has two harassment contact persons who help students and give them advice in matters regarding equality. You can find more information on the Help regarding harassment, discrimination and bullying page.
