Javel! Diversity Week will be organised at UiA in week three. The week is a collaboration between students and staff and consists of a number of events spread throughout the week.
Since we are in a special situation where it is difficult to meet in person, we believe it is particularly important to organise Diversity Week at UiA this year. To make sure it is safe and inclusive, all the events will be online.
A good learning environment requires both academic and social development. The University of Agder strives to be a non-discriminatory university and wants everyone to feel included and welcome as employees and students. Through Javel! Diversity Week, we want to contribute to this and show that we are an inclusive and diverse university.
If you are new to Southern Norway, you may be wondering why the diversity week is called ‘Javel!’. It is a positive-sounding word, similar to ‘All right!’, and in this part of the country, the word is used as a greeting. An encounter between two locals might go something like this:
Local southerner 1: All right! (Javel!)
Local southerner 2: All right, there you go! (Javel, se det!)
The working group 2020/2021 consists of:
Centre for Gender and Equality at UiA, STA – Student Organization of Agder, Skeive Studenter Agder, Philosophia, the Division of Human Resources at UiA and the Student Chaplain at UiA/tudent Welfare Organization in Agder (SiA) Health
