This lectorate uses action-oriented research to help develop The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) into a learning institute where everybody feels welcome, included and supported to reach the best of their educational potential. It does so through expanding the concept and use of a supportive community for all its community members. This lectorate aims to serve as a knowledge support center for THUAS, its extended community and other institutions on the national and international level. It is housed in the faculty of Social Work and Education and is part of the Centre of Expertise Global and Inclusive Learning.
