The COMMIT project was aimed to increase commitment to the social dimension of higher education and support strategies for increasing attainment. The key underlying question of the project evolved into: “How can lifelong learning contribute to the social dimension of universities?” The COMMIT policy reminders are written to support the advancement of fruitful interaction between universities and their contexts.

The reminders rest upon the utilization of the results of previous projects and cooperation, the extensive work of the whole COMMIT partnership during the project, and finally upon an intensive workshop in Brussels in November 2015 where the final content was designed.

The twelve reminders consist of three cognate sections. The first section emphasizes the fundamental relevance of lifelong learning as a central element of social dimension in universities. The second section focusses on the steering mechanisms that can make benevolent aspirations into concrete change. Finally, the third section indicates pathways that can lead to ever more effective arrangements of university lifelong learning in service of well-being and equality.
