Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Let everyone feel at home at Utrecht University. The university wants to make a visible contribution to an inclusive university community, to a just society, and to equal rights and opportunities for all. We believe that diversity of students and employees enrichens the academic debate and that everyone deserves equal opportunities. We see it as our social responsibility to live up to this ambition.

Utrecht University is working towards a better world and sees the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) programme as a central starting point for the policy domains of education, research and impact. The goal of the EDI programme is to make everyone feel welcome and valued at Utrecht University. The importance of the programme is reflected in our actions as students, managers and employees. These actions are focused on creating an open and inspiring community, where everyone can feel at home, with opportunities for everyone, and with space for new forms of thinking, learning and working.
