Meeting the Rector; Interactive and informal meetings with Jacob Fokkema & Karel Luyben
2005 - 2015
TU Delft organized informal meetings between the Rector and students according to the 'Closer to students' formula held at different student houses and student societies.
During the sessions, the debates were mostly at three consecutive levels on the basis of propositions.
- Current affairs reported in newspapers
- Topics related to TU Delft
- Issues or problems of a more individual nature
Since students highly value good communication with their educational institute, the Rector liked to learn directly from students what was important to them. The meetings offered an opportunity for a straightforward dialogue on the quality of education related to current societal developments without any restrictions.
By visiting the student residences at a common level, I have gained a better understanding of the student (including international students) population― Jacob Fokkema, Rector Magnificus prof.dr.ir. 2002-2009
