EPFL’s equal opportunity policy is based on federal legislation, ETH Domain specific legislation, as well as on EPFL’s Development Plan and the agreement on objectives between EPFL and the ETH Board.

On this basis, together with its steering committee and in cooperation with faculties and services, the Equal Opportunity Office draws up action plans to foster equal opportunities.
