Equality is a core democratic value and a fundamental part of the humanistic project of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). The university believes democracy and its values, like equality, to be vulnerable and in need of protection. Yesterday, today and tomorrow. VUB will oppose any attack on democracy or equality.

 

Equality is a core democratic value and fundamental part of the humanistic project of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). The university believes that democracy and its values, like equality, are vulnerable and in need of protection. Yesterday, today and tomorrow. The VUB opposes any attack on democracy or equality.

 

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel condemns any kind of apathy towards democracy or equality. This apathy must be opposed by actively battling the many faces of inequality through knowledge. This knowledge will be shared with students and professors and be part of the fabric of all public debates and dialogues with prominent individuals in politics, the business sector and the cultural world.

 

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel refrains itself from the luxury of neutrality concerning democracy and equality and is asking society and the wider community to contribute to this commitment.

 

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel commits itself as a partner to an inclusive equality project. Not only within the university itself, but also within  society as a whole and more specifically in Brussels.

 

Freedom, equality and fraternity are part of the DNA of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The university is a natural ally in opposing those forces that undermine democracy and equality, and actively strives towards an emancipation and empowerment project.

 

The VUB is made for these times.
