Measures taken by the faculties

The 2021 strategy of the University of Bern stipulates: "Genuine gender equality is to be actively pursued by all.“ Since 1995, the Regulations on Gender Equality at the University of Bern have obliged the faculties to define goals and measures for increasing the proportion of women in those areas in which women are underrepresented. These faculty control instruments are intended to achieve a balanced proportion of both genders in all areas of university life.

All eight faculties and two centres (CDE, WTI) carried out an assessment in 2015 and drew up new equality plans with a duration of four years.
