The University, as an educational entity purveyor of values, has a major role to play in thepromotion of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and in order to do that, its staff should alwaystake an ethical approach and be committed to certain values. Precisely, the encouragement of Goal5, related with gender equality, requires a proactive approach on behalf of university teachers, whoin many cases lack of adequate knowledge about contents, methods and specific materials, as well astraining and access to experiences in the area. Consequently, the introduction of gender perspective inteaching and learning process rests on the goodwill and personal involvement of teaching staff.
