Research Kapteyn Institute About the institute

A safe and pleasant work environment

The University of Groningen aims to be a university where students and staff members feel respected and at home, regardless of any visible and invisible differences in background, experiences, perspectives, characteristics and identity.
We believe that diversity in students and staff members enriches the academic debate and helps to improve the quality of teaching and research.
Diversity, inclusion and justice are important core values for the UG and are our joint responsibility.

To provide an overview of the most prominent diversity and inclusion initiatives scattered across the UG, the UG published a flow chart so that students and staff can find the support, information and training they need.

At the UG/Kapteyn Astronomical Institute, we find it important for everyone to be able to perform professionally in an open and safe atmosphere. Social safety requires continuous attention; therefore, integrity is one of our core values. Every form of unacceptable behaviour, including aggression, discrimination, sexual and other harassment, is inadmissible.
