Diversity Office

Diversity Office

Take a look around our campus and you’ll notice the diversity among our students. This diversity brings plenty of opportunities – but challenges as well. To make the most of the pros and deal with the cons, the Diversity Office puts her knowledge, expertise and experience to good use.

Within Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Diversity Office (DO) fulfils a supportive role by approaching the university from four different dimensions: Education, Research, HR and Campus & Community. Each dimension has its own dossier with which we focus on the various aspects of diversity. Take, for example, gender and gender equality, sexual orientation and gender identity, cultural, ideological and social-economical differences and various physical and mental capabilities, as well as all the other things that make people differ from one another.

We focus not only on each dimension, but also on how these dimensions intertwine with and influence one another. It is through this intersectional approach that the DO assists VU Amsterdam in creating more awareness on specific topics, outlining inclusive policies and supporting students, staff, teachers and researchers with knowledge, expertise and experience.
