Strategic Policy

Windesheim is in the top three of major universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands. How can we make sure we stay there?

Our mission is to make an active contribution to an inclusive and sustainable society, by educating valuable and principled professionals and by conducting practice-oriented research. Enabling everyone with enough talent to pursue higher education at our university, that’s Windesheim’s social responsibility. Regardless of their origin, prior education, background or age, every student with talent counts and deserves the opportunity to develop his/her full potential.

Ambitions

Our mission and social responsibility translate into the following three ambitions, determining Windesheim’s course for the next few years:

1. Each student has his/her own learning pathway that is personal, challenging and flexible.
2. The research at our university focuses on an inclusive and sustainable society.
3. We improve the transfer of students through the education chain. 

Strategic Plan 2017- 2022

The ambitions are specified in further detail in our Strategic Plan 2017-2022. This plan was discussed with, and written with input from our staff, students and external stakeholders.
