More and more alumni participating in annual tradition

UM Star Lectures 2018 attract over 1000 visitors

On the first of February, professors headed for 13 different cities in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and England to give a UM Star Lecture. This year marks the fourth time that this lecture series especially for alumni was organised. In addition to sharing knowledge and inspiration related to societally relevant themes, the evening was also intended to reinforce the bonds with the alumni and refresh the memories of Maastricht and their student days.

'Sharing a past as students at Maastricht University (UM) makes networking quite a bit easier. Experience shows that "UMmers" enjoy helping each other out with their careers and personal development. Some alumni even freely volunteer their expertise and time to support UM and to aid its further development. All this activity adds up to an invaluable network. Graduating automatically makes you a member of a global and multidisciplinary network, which is certainly an invaluable opportunity. For UM and its faculties as well, it's very worthwhile to make even greater efforts in this regard', says Jos Kievits, Development & Alumni Relations Director.
