Groep-één TUe would like to congratulate Robert-Jan Smits and Nicole Ummelen with their appointments as Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the TU/e!
The TU/e faces many challenges, from insufficient funding and tremendous growth, to fundamental changes in both research and education. We are confident that you are up to the challenge, we wish you good fortunes in the years to come!
We thank Jan Mengelers and Jo van Ham for their many years of service. Under your guidance the TU/e has become a shining beacon of innovation and grown both in both size and status. Enjoy your well-earned retirement and you are always welcome at a Groep-één borrel!
EU-topman Robert-Jan Smits start in het voorjaar van 2019 aan de TU/e en zal halverwege het jaar Jan Mengelers, die dan met pensioen gaat, officieel opvolgen als voorzitter van het College van Bestuur.

During yesterday's university council meeting Groep-één talked about how to deal with the international instream and how to execute the numerus fixus in a more careful way. We also discussed financial support for student-teams and the TU/e 2030 strategy! ...
The first week of the last quartile has started and I’m sure you’ve noticed the Canvas announcement about a 10- hour schedule to be implemented. Groep-één actively took part in the discussions regarding this plan and we even had to schedule an extra emergency meeting with the Executive Board and the director of ESA before we reached a consensus.
The decision was completely in agreement with the results of our survey and as a result from that extra meeting the Executive Board also promised to investigate measures to retain the current career activities taking place during the shorter lunch hour. The schedule will be evaluated in the third year from now. The results of the survey and full argumentation for the decision can be found on our knowledge base:

6 months ago
The Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg ISO has launched a national contact point for complaints on the Matchingsday (studiekeuzecheck dag). Thanks to our initiative, this will be mentioned by the TU/e in their Matchingsday invitation to high school students. ...

Just as the sun is coming out, it is that time again: Exams! The University Council continues to work throughout these weeks. We even have a University Council Meeting next Monday. If you are in the mood for SOG you can come by. If not, we hope the studying is going well.
Today at 19:00 there will be an “algemeen overleg” in the House of Representatives of the Dutch government about internationalization in higher education. A topic that will definitely come up is the new language policy of the TU/e. Groep-één has been discussing this topic with the ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences these past weeks to help prepare them for this debate. We wish the minister good luck with what will hopefully be a very constructive and nuanced debate.
