Discrimination Survey at Lodz University of Technology

Discrimination Survey at Lodz University of Technology

The questionnaire was provided by the University of Algarve with some modifications introduced by TUL. 435 valid answers were collected. Of the respondents, 41% were regular students, 17% were exchange students, 23% were academic staff/teachers, and 19% were non-academic staff. The youngest respondent was 17 years old, while the oldest was 68.

The aim of the survey was to identify and describe situations in which students and university staff may have experienced discrimination. The questionnaire was designed to survey these situations, enabling the project team to identify the most common types of discrimination and typical scenarios in which it may occur. These typical scenarios will be used to develop educational materials and training programs aimed at identifying the sources of prejudice and understanding one's own and others' emotions.

Respondents answered questions related only to their experiences while studying or working at Lodz University of Technology.
