About the Equal Opportunities Unit

Galala University (GU) is dedicated to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for its students. As a student-centric community, GU strives to provide opportunities for students to engage, connect, and grow. Our goal is to offer an outstanding and sustainable academic and non-academic experience for all students.

The mission of the Equal Opportunity Unit (EOU) is to ensure that students have equal opportunities to succeed by enhancing their academic and non-academic performance.

The unit implements various Accommodation Plans to cater to the needs of students with disabilities and ensure their inclusion in GU’s diverse programs.

Established in April 2020, the Equal Opportunities Unit (EOU) began its work through a collaborative agreement between Galala University and the National Council for Women. This partnership aims to strengthen cooperation between the university and the Council, supporting women’s issues in areas such as family, work, and education. The unit’s objectives include empowering women in various fields, promoting their role in Egyptian society, resolving their problems, and providing psychological support.

The unit has implemented inclusive services for students with special abilities across all faculties. A team of technical and administrative specialists facilitates educational services and ensures that these students receive the necessary accommodations approved by international and national universities.

The unit is committed to empowering all members of the university community. It assists women by helping them overcome professional and family challenges, providing legal and psychological consultations, and ensuring they receive their rights and fulfill their responsibilities efficiently.
