CUG is a university body that develops and carries out measures aimed at ensuring and promoting equal opportunities, enhancement of diversity and social well-being by fostering an inclusive culture of openness and transparency throughout all the people involved in educational and cultural activities within the university.


CUG also provides support to victims of discrimination, violence and bullying by guaranteeing equity.


CUG promotes the dissemination and respect of rules and regulations, especially ethical and professional codes of conduct that ensure the efficiency of the university administrative, educational and research organisation.


According to its main guidelines and goals, CUG aims at:

> promoting actions that foster transparency and ethical conduct within all university bodies and structures by supporting the spread and circulation of good practice rather than imposing proclaims and prohibitions;


> supporting an idea of well-being that does not just include the practical side of work but especially psychological well-being and cultural awareness of all members of the university community;


> making sure that CUG is the point of reference in any situation of harm or discomfort;


> giving a prompt response to all reports, and in the case CUG is not the directly interested institutional body, it will ensure that all requests are promptly responded to.
