Student party TOF
TOF strives for diversity and sees it as one of the priorities both at the Humanities Faculty as at the central level. A diversity policy is needed in order to ensure a faculty and university where every student feels welcome and has room to be themselves. Unfortunately, the student population of the UvA does not reflect the student population of Amsterdam in any manner. A healthy and sustainable diversification of the UvA can only be secured through a strong policy on Diversity. As TOF, we find the current Diversity Policy (2019) inadequate as it fails to cover issues of intersectionality, decolonization and ethnicity. We strongly believe this to be a shame, the UvA should strive for more diversity in different areas. Therefore, we support extending the coverage of the Diversity Policy (2019) to areas that are also mentioned in Diversity Report (2016), which will ensure a diverse, socially just, equitable and decolonized UvA.
