Harassment Protocol and Gender Equality

In its commitment to an education that promotes individual autonomy in responsible decision-making, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez encourages its students to develop a personality based on the use of individual freedom and the exercise of personal responsibility.

To make this possible, we have made a guarantee to the university community that our university constitutes a safe space free from discrimination and committed to gender equality and inclusion in diverse aspects of university life.

In 2018 a new Harassment Protocol was approved, which involved the collaborative effort of a working group made up of representatives from throughout the university community. The outcome of this university-wide effort is a new Sexual Harassment Subcommittee and an Observatory, as well as the appointment of an Ombuds.
