Gender equity is increasingly prioritized as an indicator of development and global acceptance in networks of higher education. The quality and effectiveness of an institution is, in part, judged by its gender sensitivity at global level. U I’s Gender Policy provides an institutional framework for all programmes and projects so that all stakeholders in the community can benefit from the initiative. It provides the bench- mark by which the laws governing the institution, relations between members of the university community, its activities in research, teaching, resource mobilization, welfare services and community involvement will be evaluated.
The Gender Policy shall apply to, all staff of the University, all students of the University, all contractors of and service providers, all visitors to the University and other groups of persons in the University, including but not limited to children, wards, and other dependants of staff.
