Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion

At ITU, we value diversity. We believe that students and staff with different gender, skills, educational and cultural backgrounds and so on contribute greatly to everything we do and stand for. When people with diverse backgrounds study and work together, we create better ideas and results.

We value a welcoming, inclusive and respectful environment for all. We believe that all students and staff should contribute to the creation and preservation of such an environment by acting in a way that includes, invites and respects others. In March 2022 ITU established a Committee for Diversity and Inclusion.

Sexual Harassment - what to do

Domino pieces being stopped
Sexual harassment is unacceptable at the IT University (ITU). Sexual harassment does not only concern the person subject to sexual harassment and the offending party, but also anyone who witnesses it. Everyone at ITU should know and comply with the sexual harassment policy.

Discrimination - what to do

The IT-University of Copenhagen strives to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students. In the interest of fostering an environment characterized by equality and respect, students should not behave in a way that offends, intimidates and is hostile, degrading or humiliating to others.

Gender Equality Plan

Two boxes balancing
ITU’s Gender Equality Plan sets a framework for the gender equality work at the university and outlines concrete gender diversity and inclusion measures.

In the Gender Equality Plan, the university focuses on three tracks – recruitment, study environment, and working environment – in order to ensure gender diversity and an inclusive atmosphere among students and staff alike.
