"Inclusive Excellence" - a Global Approach for European Higher Education?
The principle of inclusive excellence is presented by the European Commission in the European Strategy for Universities as rooted in European values and as one of the distinct features and key strengths of Europe’s higher education, but what exactly does it mean for European higher education policies and practices?
Join us as we explore the strategic scope and role of Europe’s global higher education cooperation outlook and approach, through the emergent concept of inclusive excellence, and provide tangible ideas for implementation to EU policymakers and stakeholders.
The panellists will discuss what inclusive excellence means for HE actors in the context of global cooperation, how this approach could be (better) leveraged to achieve institutional, national, and European level missions, what could be done at the European level to enable these processes, and more. Explore the panel themes and speakers here.
