Learning is truly valuable for achieving a better quality of life. Those who desire to learn wish to achieve a better life by making use of what they can gain through learning. Today, societies have a responsibility to provide all people with equal opportunities for learning, regardless of their backgrounds or situations. In offering these opportunities, universities and other educational institutions play a key role, providing individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve a better life. As institutions we must create communities in which these opportunities are offered to people of all abilities, medical histories, economic conditions, family environments, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, nationalities, races, languages, faiths and religions.
