New UGP publication: Balancing Act: The University Council and Board of the University in Groningen 1972–2022

19 September 2023

The Dutch/English commemorative book, titled " "Evenwichtskunst / Balancing Act : Universiteitsraad en College van Bestuur in Groningen 1972-2022 / The University Council and Board of the University in Groningen 1972–2022" is now available online and open access at UGP.

The book has been published to mark the 50-year anniversary of the Board of the University and the University Council of the University of Groningen. The book’s emphasis lies on the past two decades. In a brief historical overview, a spotlight is shined on the policy of the consecutive Boards of the University. Topics such as the Groningen Harmony Model and the Nobel Prize for Ben Feringa are addressed, while affairs such as the failed Yantai project in China are not swept under the rug.

The second part of this book consists of carefully selected photographs and headlines highlighting the last two decades of the university and an overview of all University Council and Board members since 2000.
