The perspective of equality is cross-cutting in all operations and stances of TREY. TREY influences gender equality, accessibility and equal treatment for all kinds of people at the University. TREY also organises equality training for the operators of associations operating within TREY.
The student union has a representative in the University’s equality working group, where we make sure that the student perspective is considered in the University’s equality work.
In all questions concerning the University’s or the student union’s equality, contact the equality organiser or the social affairs Specialist of TREY’s board. TREY also has harassment contact persons, who can provide confidential support in cases of bullying, discrimination or harassment.
According to the Universities Act (558/2009 Section 37a) and the Non-discrimination Act (1325/2014 Section 15), the students have a right for reasonable adjustments, so that their state of health or ability to function don’t 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 social affairs Specialist will answer questions about the accessibility of the student union’s operations and would gladly hear your comments and experiences.
Harassment and discrimination
The student union is an equal community, where we intervene with harassment, bullying and other 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 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.
