Vision & Mission


We envision the UT as a growing platform where knowledge, cultural and personal enrichment is achieved through the dialogue and fair interaction between all communities. We will strive ourselves to serve as the bridge between Latin America and Twente.


The Latin American Student Association "VOZ" was founded very recently by Latin American students at the University of Twente (UT). Following internationalization focus of the UT in the last few years. On one hand, there is an increasing number of Latin American students coming to the Netherlands to pursue their degrees, on the other hand there are students already enrolled at UT who are going to Latin America as part of their studies. A result, our mission can be summarized as follows:

  • To act as representatives of Latin American countries, in order to promote and to enhance diversity in our campus, bringing the Latin American culture to the public awareness through art, music, sports, and traditions.
  • To promote international student mobility, orienting incoming students to the University of Twente as well as students interested in going to Latin America.
  • To assist exchange students in their effort to adjust to a new environment either at the UT as well as at Latin American countries.
