Student Support

As part of the Quality Agreements 2019-2024, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie will focus in the coming years on strengthening the position of the individual student in his/her/them personal well-being and resilience as a basic condition for studying. To shape this Quality Agreement, a Student Support working group (including lecturers, students, counselor, representatives of Student Council and Unsettling) was launched in September 2019. Together we work on an action plan for the coming years.

The outbreak of Covid-19 and all measures that have been put in motion are generating a new dynamic, as well as a new support demand. The Student Support working group has adapted its original plan to provide additional support in the coming period in the form of the following projects:
