The M@tch / Match Project has been initiated to:
- Promote community involvement among students;
- Connect students and other citizens in the city of Maastricht through community involvement;
- Allow the city to reap the benefits of the added value students bring;
- Empower students to help tackle urban problems and gain practical experience.
The university of Maastricht and the municipality of Maastricht have been collaborating to improve life in Maastricht for both students and other citizens. The M@tch project is the next big step to impact the life of eventually all 120.000 citizens of Maastricht by promoting community involvement among the 20.000 students of Maastricht. Zuyd Hogschool and Trajekt will collaborate and support the project. The project is run by students, for students and focusses on connecting students and community organizations.
Connect students & the city
For students at the University of Maastricht, being socially involved in their community is a natural part of their studies. Through this community involvement students develop their professional competencies and receive credits for their work.
