The Certificate of Recognition is developed by the Erasmus University Rotterdam. The university issues a certificate for voluntary activities in addition to their academic study at our university. Hereby, the university expresses appreciation for these activities. The value of such a certificate is for example that potential employers can more easily judge whether the student had a broad(er) orientation during his study.
The University believes that the certificate must have and maintain social value. Therefore, the university has set certain conditions for activities that should be eligible for a certificate. For instance, the activities should be in line with the mission, vision and objectives of the University and there must be a clear indication that substantial effort has been made.
The certificate is part of a much broader approach by the Socially Responsible Academic Community that this university stands for. Currently, a diversity of activities is being carried out by the university: there is the sustainable purchasing policy, as well as the community services by EUR employees.
