Utrecht University is working towards a better world. How we are going to do that is set out in the Strategic Plan. We are going to join forces and show an open attitude, in addition to ambition, expertise and decisiveness. We want to share our knowledge and contribute together with others to the scientific process and to societal challenges.

The recurring theme in the Strategic Plan is our full commitment to openness: an openness found in the very DNA of our institution. Through Open Science, we are bringing this openness to maximum fruition. Five guiding principles are central to our strategy, formulated on the basis of our position and mission and taking into account our environment and social challenges.

The faculties and the Strategic Plan

The faculties have made a further interpretation of the university's course for the coming years. In the Faculty parts, the faculties describe the ambitions for their organisation, for education and for research. With their own emphases, embedded in the university's Strategic Plan.

The reason why we are achieving such great results in Utrecht, is that we are willing to work together.
