Diversity and Inclusion are of great importance to the University of Humanistic Studies. This is reflected in the recently adopted Strategic Plan 2022-2026. The ambition is to be a leader in creating space for talent, where differences between people are recognised and valued.
Inspired by the values and traditions of humanism, in which we recognise both philosophical dimensions of meaning and a moral-political ambition, the plurality of society deserves a central position in education and research. The University wants to be a place where a variety of people can develop themselves and feel safe, recognised and valued. Plurality is an important value in the humanistic tradition.
HR PolicyIn the coming years, a HR policy will be developed to support the implementation of the strategic plan. HR themes from the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities will be included in it. Within its policy, the University of Humanistic Studies will pay attention to embedding the focal area of diversity and inclusion. It will focus on talent development in the broadest sense, taking into account the national programme of “Recognition and Rewards of Academics”, policy steps in the field of hybrid working and ambitions to reduce work load and stress. These themes will be fleshed out and prioritized in close consultation of stakeholders from various organizational units.
