IDEA Center

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access

Erasmus University Rotterdam celebrates the strength our wide diversity of scientists, students and staff brings. All of our different and unique talents make our university a stronger place. For it is our diverse backgrounds, perspectives, knowledge and experiences that have made our university the vibrant environment we are today. Our IDEA Center (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access Center) is committed to creating an inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible university and strives to build an academic environment in which everyone can feel at home and where everyone can develop to their full potential.

From Words to Deeds

The IDEA Center team wrote the book From Words to Deeds - A Guide to an Inclusive Organization (available in English soon). You'll find practical tools when designing, implementing and evaluating new or existing interventions and policies.
