Groep-één TUe

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:

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.

In any case: Good luck with your exams!

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.
