The research group will achieve this goal through involving the larger, extended THUAS community and making inclusive education a normalized aspect of daily culture. Research will focus on the actual processes that are required to implement sustainable change. It will investigate the best types of support that are necessary for both students and teachers to ensure study success. The research group believes that students are an intricate part of addressing this issue and will have a branch specifically dedicated to student research, involvement, and empowerment. In addition, the research group will collaborate with national and international institutions to promote inclusive educational practices.

Student Branch project: Hang in there
The Hang In There Project is an initiative led by the Student Branch of the Lectorate of Inclusive Education to support students in their journey during the first year at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Students have shared their experiences and how they have overcome them. We also ask students to share their own experiences. Those participating in this project will periodically receive messages of encouragement and reminders that they are not alone. We celebrate and support our students in their journey here at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Hang In There!Read more
