Equal Opportunities Team in the Faculty of Theology

All equal opportunities issues in the Faculty of Theology are dealt with by a team of six, the members of which are available for consultation on all aspects concerning equal opportunities.

One member of the team is always present on various faculty`s boards and committees in her capacity as equal opportunities commissioner. In addition, we exchange information with the university`s Equal Opportunities Office as well as other decentralised equal opportunities commissioners.

We also ensure that a lectureship in Theological Gender Research is awarded each semester. This occurs on a rotational basis, alternating between the various theological disciplines

Important Note:

Our office is available outside office hours for use as a feeding and changing room. It can also be used as a chill-out room. Congenial furniture (e.g. changing table) was available. The office key can be obtained from the librarian on duty.

Baby changing facilities can be found in the disabled persons toilet on the ground floor.
