The Board Day is the starting block for new boards of associations and foundations. On this day, the Student Union, together with various other departments of the University and the municipality, provides an explanation about the possibilities for associations and foundations. For instance, the information about subsidies, or the possibility of cooperation with Studium Generale. Aside from this, it is also an ideal opportunity to network with board members of other associations and foundations.
The Board Day takes place annually during the first week of October. In addition to the “big” board day, a smaller board day is organised during the second week of February for the boards that change halfway through the academic year.
During the Board Day we hand out the Board Bible. This book contains useful information and tips for partaking in board years at the University of Twente. The Board Bible can also be downloaded below:
