Introduction

Incorporating the values of equality between women and men  in the eductaion system is the best strategy to encourage social transformation, change sexist and discriminatory mndsets and boost progress on gender equality. 
Promoting the principle of equality between women and men is a goal for the University of Alicante as high quality education is not only based on the production and tranmission of knowledge but is also focused on the training of people able to face the challenges of our society where gender violence is still a reality.

UA Office for Students, in collaboration with the Gender Equality Unit, includes the programme Stand Up for Equality in its actUA Project aimed at informing, raising awareness and preventing sexual, gender-based and sexual orientation harassment in the university community, Alicante society and, especially in lower and upper secondary centres and vocational centres in Alicante.
 
The actUA Project comprises a collection of audio visual and educational resources as well as a selection of websites aimed at raising awareness and preventing sexual, gender-based and sexual orientation harassment and encouraging the principle of eqaulity between women and men. They are all organised by education levels and the goals intended for each level (Organic Law 1/2004 on Comprehensive Protection Measures against Gender Violence, art. 4): 
 
- Pre-school Education will contribute to develop skills oriented to peaceful resolution of conflicts during this stage.
- Primary Education will contribute to develop skills oriented to peaceful resolution of conflicts and also learn and respect gender equality. 
- Secondary Education will contribuirá a desarrollar la capacidad para resolver de forma pacífica los conflictos y para conocer, valorar y respetar la igualdad de oportunidades entre mujeres y hombres.
- El Bachillerato y la Formación Profesional contribuirá a desarrollar la capacidad para analizar y valorar críticamente las desigualdades de sexo y fomentar la igualdad real y efectiva entre hombres y mujeres.
 
Junto a estos recursos que los centros educativos pueden utilizar en sus aulas, la Universidad de Alicante ofrece la posibilidad de que docentes y personal investigador de la UA impartan charlas informativas sobre la material. La solicitud se debe dirigir a la Unidad de Igualdad de la Universidad de Alicante responsable de coordinar este programa.
