Language and Culture Policy (LCP) of the University of Groningen

A Language and Culture Policy (LCP) was approved at the University of Groningen in 2014, in consultation with students and staff from throughout the organization. The Language Centre was closely involved in drafting and developing the policy, and will in the period 2014-2018 contribute substantially to the implementation of the policy by actively offering targeted support to faculties and service units, support staff, lecturers and students. This support will mainly be in the fields of language skills and intercultural competences. Please see the LCP website.
