Groep-één TUe

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.

Groep-één TUe

=== DISCUSSION WITH DUISENBERG ===
Yesterday Groep-één was present at a discussion with VSNU-chairman Pieter Duisenberg organized in Utrecht for their “Dag van de Medezeggenschap”. The discussion followed the current trends in higher education: finances, work pressure and language. There are no easy solutions yet (although increased financial resources would certainly solve most of the problems), but progress is being made.

Thank you Universiteitsraad Utrecht for organizing this constructive discussion and for inviting us.
