Groningen Together #6

Towards an inclusive student life for International & Dutch Students

Monday 27 August 2018, 13.00 – 18.00
Het Kasteel, Melkweg 1, 9718 EP Groningen

Seminar for board members and active members of study associations, particularly the new board members for ‘18-‘19; also staff and board members of student organizations involved in international relations or student services.

After the success oft previous Seminars Groningen Together a follow-up seminar will be organized, especially for the students who will be a board member of a student organization in’18-’19. International and Dutch University students already work together in courses and classes. However, a fully inclusive student life in Groningen is lacking. How can we improve the interaction between international and Dutch students outside the classrooms? How can we create an inclusive, real “Groningen together”? Which contribution can be made by boards of the student organizations?
