    dr. Casper Albers and Boris Kyuchoukov- University Politics

    08/04/2016 Duración: 34min

    Boris Kyuchoukov and dr. Casper Albers are both involved with the University Council and in this episode they will give us an insider perspective on the University of Groningen’s politics. How do ideas get generated in the council, and what is the process through which a “baby” idea gets transformed into a fully grown administrative decision? Is the scientific method used in the development of the university? Why is the focus on University Rankings both beneficial and detrimental to an educational establishment? Is it a good idea to expand our campuses to Friesland and China? What new implementations can we hope to see in the near future? Should I vote in the upcoming elections? These are just a few of the questions we discuss in the episode. Feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think!
