Diversity & Inclusivity

Maastricht University is committed to nurturing an inclusive culture. As one of the most international universities in Europe, we are aware and proud that our strength lies in diversity. We strive to go well beyond quotas and compliance: we are determined to foster an environment in which everyone feels welcome and valued.


Inclusivity is one of the main goals of UM's Strategic Programme Community at the Core.


We strive to include staff and students from all walks of life to participate in the wonderful community at UM. From guest speaker events to long term projects funded by the D&I Grants, there is always something you can get involved with and join in. As a family-friendly university we aim to facilitate study and career for students and staff with caring responsibilties.


Check out our website and get in touch if you want to be involved, have questions or suggestions.

Establishing UnliMited Network

At the D&I Office, inclusion is our top priority. Our drive to accomplish our goals is fuelled by the experiences of members in our UM community. We would like to ensure that everyone feels valued and included at UM, and to do so we need your feedback!

Help us set up the UnliMited Network for and by students and staff with disabilities and check out the UnliMited Network webpage.
