Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam aspires to educate graduates who are able to contribute to society in a professional and responsible manner. In a world that is becoming more culturally diverse, it is important that our graduates are able to address a diverse spectrum of cultural perspectives in their future careers and deal effectively with those with different cultural backgrounds.
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam aims to become a community that can serve as a model for a society more generally, in which differences are valued, utilized and approached with confidence. This constitutes the basis for social stability and innovation. We aspire to inclusive excellence: an inclusive learning and working environment, in which difference serves as a stimulus for creativity and the development of talent.
