Legal basis

The canton of Bern was the first university canton in Switzerland to institutionalize gender equality at universities with the founding of the Office of Gender Equality in 1990. The "Regulations on Gender Equality at the University of Bern", issued in 1995, detail a range of measures to balance the representation of both genders equally in all areas of the university.

Together with the Gender Equality Commission, the Office for Gender Equality supports the implementation of these regulations.
