Pilot train the trainer

Are you passionate about diversity and inclusion? Looking for a meaningful extracurricular activity? Do you want to learn the skill set to host an impactful workshop? If the answer to these questions is a wholehearted YES; that means we are looking for you!

Train the inclusion trainer

At UU we pay special attention to creating an environment that is open to everyone. We feel it is vital that the university is accessible and inclusive. We therefore want to stimulate students to be considerate of one another and make sure all students feel they are part of a community. We highly value the participation of students in the ongoing improvement of our community and we therefore want to include you, as a student, in this process. To this end, we will launch a pilot to train dedicated students to become an inclusion trainer.
