MISSION AND GOALS

 

This is what we stand for...

Welcome at the most sustainable University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands! We train our students to become high-quality, ambitious and innovative professionals who contribute to a more sustainable world.

As a University of Applied Sciences, we conduct high-quality practice-based research, which enhances both our teaching and our position as a research institute. As a research institute, we supply practice-based solutions for issues from national and international business and society. Alongside regular higher vocational study programmes, we also provide master programmes, postgraduate higher vocational training programmes and courses for regional, national and international students.

And this is what we go for...

VHL University of Applied Sciences delivers applied research which is significant for our teaching and our environment. We will achieve this by:

  • Acquiring orders from business, government and civil-society organisations with a turnover in 2017 worth at least 15% of the VHL total;
  • Developing qualitative and quantitative indicators and defining them in terms of targets for the quality of research and the significance of the research for our teaching, stakeholders and customers. The indicators we have in mind relate to the degree of participation by students in research projects, the creation of exposure for the profile and customer satisfaction.

VHL University of Applied Sciences is a financially sound and future-proof organisation. We will achieve this by means of:

  • 30% solvency from the end of 2015 and liquidity based on the current ratio with upper/lower limits of 0.5 and 1.5, respectively, throughout the plan period.
