UdG regulations

Gender equality

These Regulations are aimed at regulating recognition and coordination of associations carrying out their activity at the University of Girona.

As established under the agreement adopted by the Governing Council at ordinary session 1/2020, of 30 January, on the guidelines for planning teaching-staff recruitment and the instructions for its implementation (published in the BOUdG no. 3/2020 –eBOU1878–) in the processes of promoting teaching and research staff at the University of Girona in the provision of new places for full-professor teaching staff under the civil-servants and labour system calls for places for structural needs will have to be combined with calls for places for promotion with prioritisation by excellence and merit criteria.

These regulations constitute the instrument used by the University of Girona to regulate the requirements and procedures required to normalise the casuistry of transsexual and transgender persons within the university community, with the objective of calling them the name corresponding to the gender with which they identify within the university. In regulating those requirements and procedures, these regulations take into consideration the right to equality and the prohibition of discrimination due to sex or sexual orientation, as well as the need to protect the dignity and right to moral integrity and privacy of people in these groups who are part of our UdG university community. These rights are guaranteed in the valid legal framework.

The current regulations on doctoral degrees were approved by the Governing Council at session 3/2017 of 31 March (eBOU-980) and amended by the Governing Council at session 5/2017 of 29 June (eBOU-1032) and at session 5/2018 of 30 November (eBOU1444) and at session 8/2018 of 22 January of 2019 (eBOU-1486). The latest amendment aims to speed up the public-display procedure for doctoral theses correct a few flaws in the current regulations which are being made apparent from daily practice. Likewise, given the numerous partial amendments that have been made to these doctoral-degree regulations, another proposal is the approval of a consolidated text featuring all the amendments made, to ensure greater legal security.

Approved in Governing Council to the session 4/2019. It has been conceived with the objective of becoming an efficient instrument that it allows to correct the obstacles that the motherhood can represent for the full development, in conditions of opportunities equality, of the careers academic and investigatory of the teaching staff. The regulations regulate the procedure of application and concession of these exemptions. They address themselves to the complete PDI in time of the University of Girona that has enjoyed a permission of motherhood for the birth, adoption or welcome of a son or daughter.

Article 3.4 provides for the case that, where paternity or maternity leave has been made use of, during the seven calendar years before the start of the academic year, research-period or active-transfer recognition is extended by 12 months.

The UdG contemplates explicit or implicit distinctions linked to the promotion of gender equality, although awarded in specific sectoral areas. Such is the case with the protection of maternity and paternity leave in the recent amendment to the Employed-Researcher Regulations and the approval of their consolidated text by agreement of the Governing Council at its meeting of 16 December 2019.
