‘Groningen Together’ is an annual seminar for active board members of study associations and other student organizations. Together with the Board of the University, staff members of student services/international relations and student assessors, the study association and student organization board members discuss the inclusion of international students, student wellbeing and career possibilities within their own associations and organizations.

What is the international perspective on our University? How can we better incorporate other nationalities and cultures in our associations and organizations? How can we find a balance between growing more internationally and remaining relevant for Dutch students at the same time? All of these questions will be discussed in the following programme:
