Live stream Dies Natalis

8 February 2021

Celebrate with us the 446th Dies Natalis of Leiden University on 8 February 2021.

This year, Professor Ineke Sluiter will deliver the Dies lecture, after which Professor Carel Stolker will give a short speech. An honorary doctorate will then be conferred on human rights and child rights activist Graça Machel by Leiden University via a live video link with South Africa.

On this special day we will bid farewell to our current Rector Magnificus and President, Professor Carel Stolker, who will hand the rectorate over to Professor Hester Bijl. The new President of the Executive Board will be Professor Annetje Ottow.

The ceremony will take place without attendees in the Pieterskerk in Leiden, but can be followed by everyone via a live stream that will start at 14:30.
