Equality Unit​ (EqU)

The Equality Unit (EqU) takes its inspiration from the South African Bill of Rights, where no person should be unfairly discriminated due to their race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language, and birth. The core function of the Unit is to assist students and staff who have been victimised, sexually harassed, unfairly discriminated against, and who have been victims of gender-based violence through formal (and informal) complaint procedures. The EqU also focuses on HIV, the LGBTQIA+ community, gender identity, sexualities, and gender non-violence, and provides counseling and testing, training and development, and support services to all students. In addition, the Unit contributes to Stellenbosch University's Unfair Discrimination and Harassment, and HIV/Aids policies and implementation thereof.
