Radboud University

Dialogue on the identity of Radboud University

In the run-up to Radboud University’s centenary in 2023, we would like to invite you to participate in a dialogue about our University’s identity. This way, we can determine what we stand for and establish Radboud University's multicoloured story.

What does Radboud University mean to you? What do we stand for and what makes us unique? What do  our mission, the three core values – being curious, connected, reflective – and our ‘special’ origins mean for staff members and students?
