SUC Programme 2013-2016 P-4: "Equal opportunities at Swiss universities / Gender Studies"

The overarching goal of the SUC Programme 2013–2016 is for equal opportunities for women and men to become sustainably within higher education organisations, teaching, talent advancement, and research by 2016. It is also committed to ensuring that Gender Studies becomes sustainably established in university teaching and research.

The SUC Programme unites the subprogrammes “Equal Opportunities” and “Gender Studies” under one roof. Developing innovative equal opportunities measures and the purposeful anchoring of Gender Studies within higher education are complement each other. Reciprocal knowledge transfer and synergies are intended to support the drive toward equal opportunities. This objective corresponds to the European Commission’s demand for increasing the number of women in science and for incorporating the gender dimension as a quality feature into higher education research.

The Subprogramme Equal Opportunities (TPC)

This subprogramme strives to make considerable progress with ensuring equal opportunities for women and men in the Swiss university system. Achieving this objective requires appropriate staff and financial resources and the anchoring of equal opportunities structures within university budgets, long-term planning, and decision-making.

The Subprogramme Gender Studies (TPG)

This subprogramme aims to ensure that Gender Studies becomes sustainably established at Swiss universities and that this field is placed on a par with other scientific disciplines. TPG also strives to consolidate the existing country-wide Gender Network and to safeguard its long-term existence.

Equal Opportunities Action Plans of the 10 Cantonal Universities

The 10 cantonal universities employ the funding allocated by the Equal Opportunities Subprogramme to implement their action plans for achieving equal opportunities for women and men. In contrast to its preceding project (Federal Programme 2000–2012), the new programme no longer supports individual projects and persons. Instead, it grants the universities greater flexibility in implementing their equal opportunities activities. Second, the new programme provides the gender issue with a broader basis within the universities. Third, it ensures that equal opportunities structures and measures, which are funded largely by federal resources, are integrated into the universities’ regular budgets.
