Education is more than study credits
Through quality, commitment and personal contact in our education, we aim to ensure that students develop into critically-minded scholars capable of taking on responsible positions that make a positive contribution to society.
Our research: driven by curiosity
We conduct high-quality and internationally accredited academic research with a focus on collaboration and pushing the boundaries of our knowledge. To ensure that this continues, we also kept academic freedom and curiosity high on our agenda in 2022.
Our impact: involved in the world
Our ambition is to take a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to solving diverse issues of social relevance. We do so via our research, but also by being meaningful to society in other ways.
Students and staff: engaged with each other
We want to be an inclusive university where students and staff inspire and challenge one another, a university that invests in the continuous development and wellbeing of its students and staff.
The added value of our campus
Our (digital) campus should be a sustainable and safe space that is conducive to studying, working, collaboration and interaction. For part of 2022, that in-person interaction was impossible.
A future-proof financial position
A strong and balanced financial position ensures the continuity of education and research.
Our organisation: on the move
Since 1 January 2021, both organisations have been incorporated into their own foundations.
