Service pour le Respect et l'Egalité Aix Marseille Université

Given the scale of the phenomenon of sexist and sexual violence, discrimination and harassment in contemporary society, it seemed necessary for the university, which is strongly committed to these issues, to create a department fully dedicated to the prevention of such violence: the Service pour le Respect et l'Égalité (SpRE).
This internal, independent, professionalized service is unique in France, making Aix-Marseille Université a pioneer in this field.
