Task Forces

Task Force Diversity & Inclusion

EADTU members have a dedicated task in organising education also for disadvantaged groups of students by offering them easy accessible learning paths made fit for a great diversity of students. Open and distance teaching universities are inclusive, innovative and responsive, promoting social justice and equality of opportunity and represent strategic positioning of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

The Open and distance teaching universities therefore represent a great variety of policies, approaches, expertise and experiences in this field that we are sharing within this dedicated Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion.
