Maarten Frens awarded Erasmus Education Prize
Every year, Erasmus University Rotterdam awards the Education Prize to a member of the academic staff who has made a particularly commendable contribution to education at our university. This year’s winner of the Education Prize is Prof. Maarten Frens, founding dean of the Erasmus University College (EUC).
Prof. Maarten Frens is founding dean of Erasmus University College. From the very start, Prof. Frens has shown an unflagging dedication to the development of a high-quality EUC curriculum, in terms of both content and teaching aspects. He created new teaching formats, educational themes and complete curricula and was closely involved in setting up EUC’s talent development programme. In addition to recognising Prof. Frens for his teaching achievements, the jury also lauds his commitment to promoting diversity and internationalisation within EUC, and at EUR as a whole. The jury holds his work as founding dean of EUC, his involvement in the Erasmus MC Honours Programme and his initiative to set up the EUCjr (EUC junior college) programme in high regard.
The award ceremony takes place during the Opening Academic Year 2018-2019 at the Laurens Church.
