Utrecht University is an organisation where cooperation and trust are central and where employees and students enjoy working and studying.

Utrecht University stimulates diversity and inclusion within education, research and the organisation.

A diverse and inclusive community of students and teachers contributes to an inspiring and challenging learning environment. In addition, this is a good preparation for working in a pluriform society.

Diversity and inclusion enrich the academic debate and contribute to an intensive cooperation and exchange with social organisations.

Utrecht University considers it important to contribute to bridging opposites and creating equal opportunities for all.
