Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences

Growing as experts in transition

Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences (VHL) is the most sustainable university of applied sciences in the Netherlands and has an international focus. As a knowledge institute, our university of applied sciences combines education provided by passionate experts with applied research within its various applied research groups. VHL trains students to become high-quality, ambitious, innovative professionals who go on to contribute to a sustainable world.

With the Institutional Plan ‘Groeien als experts in transitie’, we provide direction for our education and research for the 2022-2025 period. This plan is the articulation of HVHL’s future and serves as a guide for our policy plans and annual evaluations. The plan was created thanks to the input of numerous partners, students, alumni and HVHL colleagues.

In essence, it concerns 4 transitions, critically important changes that are crucial for a future-proof world. We are making an important contribution to these transitions in cooperation with the professional field and the government. Thus we find ourselves facing a beautiful but daunting task which we will be giving form to in the coming period.
