Recently, Justin Kroesen was elected the University of Groningen Lecturer of the Year. He swayed the jury with a mini lecture on the educational aspects of Protestant church interiors, an area Kroesen is well versed in as a renowned expert on historical church interiors.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
