Equality Policy

In order to advance equality between women and men, Sorbonne University has set up an Equality Group, a charter and a three-year action plan to put its commitments into practice.

Equality Policy

Why have an Equality Group?

In order to improve equality between women and men, Sorbonne University has created an Equality Group, a charter and a three-year action plan to implement its commitments.

Its activities are designed to promote professional equality between staff, regardless of how they identify, as well as equal treatment between male and female students, and to fight against all gender-based discrimination.

In order to make equality a daily reality within our community, the three faculties have also set up equality teams and a network of equality representatives.

Putting our commitments into practice with an action plan

To act against professional inequalities between women and men that can also be observed in the university environment, Sorbonne University has adopted an action plan that consists of a series of concrete actions to be carried out in the next three years.

The main goals of the action plan:

  • Addressing the pay gap between women and men
  • Ensuring equal access to training, jobs and careers
  • Promoting a balance between private and professional life
  • Fighting against gender-based and sexual violence

The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).
