Tilburg University strategy: Setting out together for 2027
In 2027, the University will celebrate its 100th anniversary. With a new strategy towards our centennial, we are preparing for the future and anticipating challenges and developments in our society
This new strategic plan, with the vision and focus for the development of Tilburg University in the coming years, is something we create together. The Executive Board (EB) invites everyone in our academic community, scientific and non-scientific staff, students, alumni, and external partners, to participate. This website offers an overview of all activities and how you can participate.
Formation of the strategy
Based on the reason and starting points, we determine our vision, mission, and core values and enter into dialogue with each other about them. At the same time, we are also working on forming the Schools’ strategic plans. This will result in a strategy that will be presented at the New Year's meeting in 2022.
Our mission is changing
Society is changing at a rapid pace. Changes such as those in the field of digitalization, the impact of the current pandemic, and transition issues due to climate change have a major impact on notions of fulfillment and our role as human beings in society. And with that, our mission as a humanities and social sciences university is changing.
Vision, mission, and core values
If we want to know where we are going, it is good to know what we want to stand for. Based on what mission and vision will Tilburg University achieve its goals leading up to its 100th anniversary? The Executive Board and the Deans have given direction and inspiration for the next steps of the strategy process and invite you to discuss this.
