De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

TU Delft: an inclusive university

Following the recent Nashville Declaration, a strong social debate has taken place over the past few days, also within our university community.

TU Delft stands for diversity; it is one of our core values. All members of the TU Delft community should treat each other with respect regardless of their culture, religion, ethnicity, socio-economic background, gender and sexual orientation. We have recorded this in our Strategic Framework. We appreciate that everyone has a personal opinion, but the base is respect for each other.

As TU Delft we trust that the members of our community will act according to these principles.

You can read more about our values in TU Delft’s Integrity Statement.

On behalf of the Executive Board,

Tim van der Hagen

A nice student story for the Holidays: reborn in a new culture

Victor Brouwers participated in the Netherlands Asia Honours Summer School (NAHSS) and tells us about his experiences:

“As if you are smothered in a sandstorm made of humid air; that was my first impression of Chengdu after leaving the plane. After having lived towards this moment for months, it was finally there. Together with my highly varied group of students I stepped into an adventure like never before. I would complete a consulting project for PricewaterhouseCoopers and study in China for about 5 weeks.

We were at the beginning of our five weeks in Chengdu, where we would grow closer with the other project groups, follow ‘Chinese Language’ and ‘Modern Society and Politics’ at Sichuan University, get overwhelmed by the spicy local food and bring our project to a successful end, only to then go to Shanghai for the closing week with NAHSS’ers from the other cities”.
