Groningen Together #4

Towards an inclusive student life for International & Dutch Students

Tuesday 29 August 2017, 13.30 - 18.00
Het Kasteel, Melkweg 1, 9718 EP Groningen

Seminar for board members and active members of all types of study and student organizations, particularly the new board members for ‘17-‘18; also staff involved in international relations or student services.

After the success of three 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 ’17-’18. 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 class rooms, and in social life, sports and culture? How can we create an inclusive, real “Groningen together”? Which contribution can be made by boards of the student organizations?
