Survey first generation academics: share your experience (Maastricht University)

Who are we looking for? We are looking for first-generation academics, i.e. academics whose parents did not obtain a university degree. From our previous data, we found out those academics face various challenges, both during their studies as well as during their academic career. This is a UM wide initiative making use of the Diversity & Inclusivity grant; we possibly hope to develop a policy that would help first-generation students during their studies.

The focus groups take place on Friday 13, 11:00-13:00 and Monday 16, 11:00-13:00. Would you like to participate but cannot make it in the specified times? Please send an email to and one of the researchers can interview you in time & location of your preference.
