Our university is celebrating its 110th anniversary, the 22nd Lustrum! Our founding fathers surely couldn’t have imagined how we study, work and conduct impactful research on our Woudestein campus and at other locations in Rotterdam, The Hague and elsewhere in the world in 2023: with an immense diversity of staff and students, a wide variety of research and a clear mission to make the world a better and fairer place through teaching and research.
Of course, it’s hard to predict what our university will look like in another 110 years. Nevertheless, we do have to try as a university to prepare ourselves for the future as best as possible. Because even then we still want to play a crucial role as a scientific institution when it comes to finding smart, sustainable solutions for big issues such as poverty, social inequality, climate change, pandemics and human rights.
After all, that’s our university’s entire reason for being – both now and in the future.
As part of our 110th Dies Natalis, we will embark on a journey to explore new horizons and answer the question of how, in another 110 years, EUR can still be a top university that creates positive societal impact. As such, the theme of our 110th Dies Natalis, taking place on Wednesday 8 November 2023, is as follows:
‘Making Minds Matter: New Horizons’.
