Universities draw few minorities 6/30/2007
28 June 2007

AMSTERDAM – Universities are still not managing to attract more students of ethnic background. This has emerged from a study commissioned by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU).

There are three times fewer academics of minority background than native Dutch. Those minorities who do pursue higher education do very well. They receive higher than average marks and integrate much better in society. Almost four in ten students of ethnic background consider themselves a Dutch person.

The VSNU says that society would benefit greatly from more minorities in higher education. Universities are therefore going to make extra efforts to attract ethnic students in the coming months.
