Erasmus University's mission is to create positive social impact. We strive to understand contemporary, complex societal challenges and to contribute to their solution through our education and research. We do this in close collaboration with our external partners both locally and globally.
Our mission serves as our compass: it helps focus our attention, inspires us in our daily activities and provides direction when we face strategic choices – as a university, as individual faculty or institute, as a department.
We have defined seven priorities to guide the implementation of our mission throughout 2024:
- Foster our societal impact identity
- Ensure our education is future-oriented
- Embed excellent academic research in society
- Take responsibility on sustainable development
- Invest in our people for the future
- Step up our professional services
- Make the most of our interdisciplinary potential
