Our mission

Radboud University is a private university that owes its origins to the Catholic emancipation movement that was active at the start of the twentieth century. The university’s staff members and students feel connected to each other, to society, and to the world around them. We focus our attention on taking care of each other and the world around us and we are committed to equal rights for social and cultural minorities. We want to make a difference and, to this end, we are guided by academic issues and social challenges.
