HKU is all about being given responsibility and taking responsibility, in every layer of the organisation. Our staff do so on the basis of their professionalism: as lecturers, researchers, support staff, managers or board members.
Room for initiative
We are a flat organisation with the fewest possible layers. The various tasks in education, research and support are clearly distributed, while giving plenty of scope for students and staff to take initiative and to develop. This takes place, of course, within the parameters set by the Executive Board.
The organisation of HKU consists of nine schools and a supporting organisation.
HKU (University of the Arts Utrecht) is a public benefit organisation (ANBI). This status is given to an organisation if it has a 90% focus on public interest. HKU meets this requirement.
