Diversity and inclusion in European universities: which way forward?

Inclusiveness has become a strategic question for a number of higher education institutions across Europe, impacting learning and teaching, research and institutional cultures. Many have taken action to find new ways to enable people from various backgrounds to find their place in higher education. The idea that diverse learning environments may better prepare students for a diverse society and that diverse research environments are a precondition for excellence is gaining ground.

The event will be a unique opportunity to discuss a topic of growing importance for Europe and its universities based on the findings of the INVITED report with data from 159 higher education institutions in 36 European systems. It will also be an occasion to showcase examples of institutional approaches towards diversity, equity and inclusion in learning, teaching, research and innovation and discuss policy implications with representatives of the EU institutions, national ministries, students and university leadership.
