A letter sent by Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences to the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science on the dubious methods some agencies employ to recruit international students for public universities, was raised in parliament by MPs via written questions. A reply by the Minister, Ingrid van Engelshoven, is expected in the next two weeks as part of the department of education's budget vote.

“Diversity is a prerequisite for quality,” the Dutch minister of higher education, Ingrid van Engelshoven, recently said as she presented her “National Action Plan for Diversity and Inclusion” at Leiden University. “In an inclusive organisation, everyone can fully and equally participate and share in the decision-making process. I find it extremely important to create a safe learning and working environment in which all can feel at home and grow. That is what we want to stimulate with this national action plan,” Van Engelshoven continued.
