Who comes too close goes too far!


The University of Bern is committed to an environment free of any kind of discrimination. We fight against all forms of sexism (discrimination of people because of their gender) and sexual harassment.

Everybody has the right to have their personal integrity protected and their personal boundaries respected at work and during their studies. The University of Bern is legally bound to protect its members from sexual harassment and it does not tolerate any transgressions.

This is the University’s website about the subject of sexual harassment. Besides general information on the subject, you can find information about the legal situation, about procedures, rights and duties at the University of Bern and also concrete help and contact points for people being harassed, for witnesses, supervisors and HR managers.
