Optimizing internationalization, inclusion and diversification by setting up an admissions learning community

Learn about a collaborative learning community whose aim it has been to set fundamental and transparent admission policies. A successful project initiated by Utrecht University that reached national level and is now under the umbrella of the Association of Dutch Universities (VSNU). A project that focuses on topics such as bias, open vs. selective admissions, standardized testing and is not restricted to the Dutch Higher education landscape but admissions policies worldwide.
