Equal opportunities are an integral part of EPFL’s development and excellence policy. The Equal Opportunity Office is attached to the Vice Presidency for Responsible Transformation (VPT).

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.
