Evenwichtskunst | Balancing Act

Het verhaal van de Universiteitsraad wordt voornamelijk verteld aan de hand van veel foto’s en krantenkoppen. Aan bod komen onder meer vergaderingen, spannende en grappige momenten, excursies en wisselraden. Er is bovendien ruime aandacht voor de viering van het jubileum op 1 september 2022, die tegelijkertijd een gezellige reünie was. The commemorative book Balancing Act has been published to mark the 50-year anniversary of the Board of the University and the University Council of the University of Groningen.

The book’s emphasis lies on the past two decades. In a brief historical overview, a spotlight is shined on the policy of the consecutive Boards of the University. Topics such as the Groningen Harmony Model and the Nobel Prize for Ben Feringa are addressed, while affairs such as the failed Yantai project in China are not swept under the rug. The story of the University Council is primarily told through many photos and newspaper headlines. Meetings, exciting and funny moments, excursions, and exchange councils are just some of the featured matters. In addition, attention is paid to the celebration of the anniversary – and reunion – on 1 September 2022.
