Tekst: A significant impact

'We are contributing to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all'

We are guided by both academic questions and societal challenges. We have an eye to ethical issues and the implications of our research for society.

We are active across many fields of academic endeavour. Research and teaching are closely interlinked at our university.

We encourage an open intellectual climate in which staff and students inspire and challenge one another, a climate in which they change perspectives, push boundaries, take responsibility and reach their full potential. We form a close academic community together with Radboud university medical center. Staff and students feel a commitment to one another, to society and to the world around them.

Our students develop into conscientious, committed, critical and self-confident graduates who go on to take up responsible positions in society.
