Mission and priorities

One university, one community, one goal

‘Creating positive societal impact.’ This new mission is how we are shaping the transition ahead of us at Erasmus University Rotterdam. This concept is the core of our societal engagement. 

Our mission is to make a positive impact on societal challenges. We strive to understand and make progress towards solving complex societal challenges, with alignment in our core activities of education and research and in close cooperation with our partners locally and globally. We have laid down a solid foundation of shared values and a clear mission. Expressed in terms of our wishes, ambitions and ideas, the strategy acts as a compass that sets out our course towards 2024 based on seven strategic priorities:

  1. Fostering our societal impact identity
  2. Ensuring our education is future-oriented
  3. Embedding excellent academic research in society 
  4. Taking responsibility on sustainable development
  5. Investing in our people for the future
  6. Stepping up our professional services
  7. Making the most of our interdisciplinary potential
