Introduction meeting

Introduction meeting for new staff members (in Dutch)

Monday 14 February 2022

Perhaps you already know that the university has 7 faculties, about 4,000 staff members and more than 20,000 students. But do you also know where the motto ‘Praesidium Libertatis’ comes from? Or what the Sweat Room is and where it is located? Do you know what current issues the university is occupied with? The introduction meeting for new employees is your opportunity to really get to know the university.

We consider it important for you to not only become familiar with your new workplace, but that you also learn about the ambitions and traditions of the oldest university in the Netherlands. That is why the university organises an introductory morning for new employees four times a year (twice in English, twice in Dutch) with a guided tour and a lunch. The following topics are on the programme for this event:

  • Welcome and quiz
  • Inspiration session
  • Exploring the University
  • Lunch with a member of the Executive Board
  • And of course plenty of time to get to know your colleagues!
