Leiden University has signed a statement of intent concerning the improvement of inclusivity and accessibility in education in 2018. This statement of intent was urged by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with a Disability and has led to the start of the Barrier-Free Studying project in 2020. One of the main goals of the project was; creating an inclusive environment where people with a disability can find their way, without help of others. Other important goals were student participation and knowledge accumulation to employees and students.
