The University of Twente has signed the UN Declaration of Intent, committing to being an inclusive and accessible institute for students with a disability. The official signing by UT vice-president Machteld Roos took place today in Ravelijn.
The UT has its first diversity and inclusion action plan in place. The overarching goal: to create a safe university where everyone feels welcome. First steps to reaching that goal include a diversity and inclusion week, setting up an anti-discrimination statement and more focus on the theme during the Kick-In. D&I officer Sterre Mkatini explains about the action plan.
