The Inclusive University

Universities are increasingly establishing diversity initiatives and implementing programs with the goal of creating an inclusive environment. But what is an inclusive university and what does it take to become more inclusive? Is it possible to be inclusive for everyone? And which dilemmas might arise when dealing with diversity in universities? In this talk, Prof. Marieke van den Brink will discuss these questions and point to changing number, institutions and knowledge, which might be a starting point for envisioning an inclusive university.

Prof. dr. M.C.L. (Marieke) van den Brink

It shows how the economic recession is creating a turbulent environment for higher education systems which poses new gender equality challenges for universities and early career academics.
