YUFE Diversity & Inclusivity
Experience Europe and co-create the future
D&I and YUFE
YUFE has a vision for diversity and inclusivity. This vision is at the core of our identity. It is the foundation on which we are built; a tangible message and thread that runs through the heart and mind of our Alliance.
Our diversity and inclusivity vision is:
- For all YUFE institutions to become, and be recognised as, leaders in diversity and inclusivity
- For YUFE to be a place of positive and open discourse around diversity and inclusivity
- For all YUFE institutions to have inclusive systems, structures, policies and procedures
- For the diversity in society to be reflected at all levels of YUFE institutions
- For all YUFE staff and students to be advocates for diversity and inclusivity and to inspire others to share the YUFE values

YUFE hosts a wide range of events which are open to everyone across the YUFE Alliance.

YUFE D&I Grant
Thirteen innovative student-staff projects from across Europe have successfully secured funding from the YUFE Diversity and Inclusivity (D&I) Grants initiative.
Diversity and inclusivity is key to the YUFE Alliance (Young Universities for the Future of Europe) and a core value for all its members.
To explore how the Alliance could further explore diversity and inclusivity within YUFE, the D&I Grant scheme was launched to encourage innovative activities promoting diversity, inclusion and equity, in line with YUFE’s D&I promises and aims.

YUFE Diverse Perspectives Scheme
We are proud to boast a rich diversity of people within the YUFE community. However, within that broad diversity, some people will have faced similar challenges or had similar opportunities, which have shaped their lives. YUFE wants to support all its staff and students to reach their potential, whatever their background or experiences, and be able to thrive as their true selves in a safe and supportive environment.
The YUFE Diverse Perspectives initiative invites members of the YUFE community to share their stories, values and beliefs and the aspects of their identity that have helped them develop into the people they are today.
