Global Minds UHasselt 2017-2021


The Global Minds programme is embedded withing Hasselt University's current institutional mission and the 2016-2020 policy of Rector, Prof. Luc De Schepper. It aims to strengthen the institutional capacity towards having University Development Cooperation (UDC) with impact. This impact is integrated in each of the intermediate result areas, and aims to:


  • strengthen the dimension of development cooperation within its compentence-based education;
  • broaden and deepen its knowledge generated within its spearhead domains in collaboration with partners from developing countries;
  • create within its academic community 'agents of change' for development cooperation by organising a diversity of awareness raising activities with impact.


By implementing a development dimension within these intermediate result areas, Hasselt University will contribute to (i) the development-relevant capacity building of the faculties, taking their current level of capacity as baseline, and (ii) the general capacity of Hasselt University as a higher education institution.
