Academic freedom always comes first

Statement Executive Board

The Executive Board of Erasmus University Rotterdam defends the academic freedom, at all times. 

"To restrict the academic freedom is something which we do not believe fits in a open society and is therefore condemnable. We believe that our scientists and professors should be able to do their work in all freedom. Both, in the field of education as well as research. Within this, there is room for all mindsets. Of scientists, teachers and of students. 

Lastly, we believe in the positive societal impact of our scientific education and research. We are convinced that science and stimulating dialogue, on the basis of research, contribute to a better society and future for next generations."
