Protestant Theological University

Netherlands Amsterdam Groningen September 2017

The Protestant Theological University (PThU) is a university for theology based on a religious view of life, located in Amsterdam and Groningen. The PThU aims at profound and relevant theological education and research with regard to developments in faith, church and Christianity worldwide. Work in the university is inspired by its close association with the church and a fascination for what faith does with people – explicitly including the personal faith of its staff and s… [+] tudents. Committed type of theological practice The PThU stands for committed academic theological practice with particular responsibility for the Protestant tradition. The leading framework is the clerical and societal relevance of today, profound knowledge and elaboration of sources and respect for tradition. Education for the ministry of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands The Protestant Theological University has longstanding experience with education for the ministry. The PThU offers official education for the ministry, recognized by the Protestant Church in the Netherlands, for both congregational and pastoral care ministers. It also offers post-academic education to ministers and clerical workers. For more information on the Protestant Church in the Netherlands see Relation to the Protestant Church in the Netherlands There exists a mutual understanding between the PThU and the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (PCN). The PThU draws on the Christian faith in its work in the areas of education and research. Attending to the sources and history of the Christian faith, the study of the beliefs and confessions of the church and attending to learned faith and church praxis are all done in solidarity with the traditions that have united in the PCN. The PCN involves itself with the PThU by defining the requirements and objectives of the education programs and in the formation of those wishing to be accepted as pastors in the PCN. Administratively, this involvement is demonstrated by the Supervisory Council, which is charged with the supervision of the PThU Board under the oversight of and in accountability to the General Synod of the PCN. Commitment to society The PThU wishes to be a university committed to society. This is instanced by conferences, study-days and publications for a broad audience. Thus the PThU contributes from a Christian tradition to the societal discourse on faith, church and society. Some of these activities are initiated by the PThU itself, some by others. Established in 2007 The PThU has come into being after a merger of the official educations for the ministry of the Reformed and Lutheran traditions. When the PThU was established, a mono-faculty university management structure was opted for. The members of the Supervisory Board are appointed by the Synod of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands. This warrants the connection of the PThU with the church. Organisation Executive Board The Protestant Theological University (PThU) is run by an Executive Board, which is responsible for overseeing the preparation and implementation of the university’s education and research policies. In addition, the Board takes care of day to day tasks involved in the functioning of the university. The Executive Board is appointed by the Supervisory Council. This Council ensures that the Board abides by the obligations that apply to the university on the basis of legal and church rule in the exercise of its duties and powers. The Supervisory Council is appointed by the General Synod of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands. The Executive Board is assisted in its duties by the managing director, the director of education and the Advisory Council. PThU International Protestant theology is international by definition. Therefore internationalisation, understood as “the process of integrating an international, intercultural and/or global dimension into the goals, functions and delivery of higher education” is one of the key priorities of the university. The international, English-taught Master of Theology programme in Groningen, with students from Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania is a clear example of this effort to integrate an international and intercultural dimension into education by means of a real international classroom. But the PThU also seeks to facilitate true international experiences for Dutch students in Groningen ánd Amsterdam through student mobility programmes and the invitation of foreign guest lecturers. By developing sandwich PhDs and joint doctorate programmes the university also tries to further the internationalisation of its doctoral education. In the area of research, internationalisation for the PThU means active participation in international networks and conferences and publication in relevant international peer reviewed journals. More specifically the university has built up in recent years a strong network of internationally recognised partner institutions in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. More intensive research cooperation is in place with strategic partners in South Africa, United States, Israel and several European countries. [-]

Enter the doors of Hotelschool The Hague, and you enter one of the world’s most special universities. We are proud of the fact that Hotelschool The Hague is one of the last independent single sector Universities of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands.

Since its foundation, t… [+] he Hotelschool has become an international school specialised in hospitality management offering a 4-year Bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management. This degree course is also available as the accelerated International Fast Track programme. Since the foundation more than 80 years ago the hotel school has become bigger, more internationally oriented and has professionalised immensely. But the original fundamentals stayed the same, like the dedicated focus on hospitality and the strong connection with the industry. Also the “core business” of the hotel school stayed the same; a centre where hospitality knowledge and skills are bundled, developed, researched, shared and transferred as realistic as possible in order to prepare young hospitality leadership talents for a successful career in the business. Hotelschool The Hague, at the heart of Hospitality. There is more to Hotelschool The Hague than meets the eye.

The results from both divisions are quickly assimilated in our educational programmes so that our students learn from state of the art hospitality business cases; a continual programme of curriculum improvement. Governance In 2006 the General Assembly of the HBO Council created a governance code. Hotelschool The Hague has adopted this code. The code consists of, among others, rules for good governance. It also has a code of provisions and rules for the supervision and involvement of stakeholders in education and research. Statutes The statutes of the Stichting Hotelschool The Hague lay down the basic rules and provisions of the foundation. It describes the goals and the statutes of the school and the responsibilities and tasks of the Board of Directors and the Board of Trustees. Strategic vision Hotelschool The Hague will strengthen its ties with its hospitality students, employees, alumni and the industry. In the Strategic Vision 2012-2018 Hotelschool The Hague will focus on these core issues: - intensification of education - a stronger relationship with the industry - internationalisation Our Values Following a year of researching and consulting with our current students, faculty and management we recently introduced Hotelschool The Hague's new Values. It is a values-based ethical code, created by us for us. This means our values will be heart-felt not just head-stored, accentuating our identity and culture, our mission and vision, and not the least, our passion for the industry which needs leaders not only of high competence but also of excellent character. Our Values appeal to the individual's personal responsibility and moral competency, calling for all those in our community to make sound moral decisions based on values we can all identify with. To support the Values we have created a Manifesto for our students, faculty and management providing us all with a north star for our actions and behaviours. Our values are represented by the letters in HOSPITALITY: - H - We are Honest - O- We are Open - S - We are Sustainable - P - We are Professional - I - We are Integrity-Driven - T - We are Transparent - A - We are Ambassadors - L - We are Loyal - I - We are International - T - We are Trustworthy - Y - We are Yes-Minded [-]

University of Groningen

Netherlands Groningen Leeuwarden September 2017

Who are we? The University of Groningen has a rich academic tradition dating back to 1614. From this tradition arose the first female student and the first female lecturer in the Netherlands, the first Dutch astronaut and the first president of the European Central Bank. Geographically, the University is rooted in the Northern part of the Netherlands, a region very close to its heart. ... where education and research meet The University provides high quality… [+] education and research in a broad range of disciplines. We distinguish ourselves in the international market through a close link between education and research and by focusing on three key elements: Energy, Healthy Ageing and Sustainable Society. Not only are our education and research programmes socially relevant, but our researchers also collaborate with business partners, public institutions and the government. In addition, the University of Groningen stimulates current debate on scientific, social and cultural issues by providing convincing perspectives and fresh ideas, based on the latest scientific findings. ... as an international player Education and research at our university are internationally oriented. Students from all over the world prepare themselves in Groningen for their international career paths. We have a strong international reputation and maintain a firm - rapidly increasing - position in the international rankings lists. Collaborations between researchers on the frontiers of knowledge take place within extensive networks, affirming our strong, world wide reputation. ... stimulating talent development for students As a University, we take the personal ambitions and abilities of our students into account. We provide all students with a well-balanced, high quality curriculum across a multitude of disciplines. For students with strong ambitions and personal motivation we have more intensive programmes such as the University College, Honours College, Research Master and Topmaster programmes. In these programmes we stimulate our students to challenge themselves in terms of education and research. In this respect the University offers students a broad, high quality academic education and gives special talents an extra boost. ... stimulating talent development for staff We dare to differentiate between the various talents of our staff members and pay extra attention to personal development. By focusing on the direct link between performance, career prospects and remuneration, we give our staff members the opportunity to fully develop their abilities. The University actively contributes to the establishment of an ambitious and inspiring working environment. Introducing the Strategic plan Research, education, societal impact and talent development are essential to achieving our mission and vision. Research and education have always been the University’s raison d’être; societal impact and talent development, although an inherent part of research and teaching, have recently been made a more explicit aspect of the University’s activities. If it is to fulfil its task here, the University needs to perform on regional, national and international levels. Although this presents opportunities, the competition is fierce, especially in the national and international fields. Furthermore, if we are to consolidate or preferably improve our position in the global academic world, we will need to perform and become even better in the four areas of research, education, societal impact and talent development. Our strategic objectives, as stated in the following sections, are therefore geared towards improvement in these areas. This is combined with global expansion in the shape of (inter)national branch campuses that should consolidate our education and research. Achieving the strategic objectives will involve launching new initiatives and most likely revising, reducing or terminating existing ones. Societal impact As the University is intrinsically embedded in society as a whole, it cooperates with government, industry and society to share knowledge and generate new investment in research. This cooperation has a regional emphasis, as the University considers it very important to support and develop the area in which it has its roots. This cooperation takes shape as consultancy, public-private partnerships and a wide range of contracts and 9 activities that facilitate knowledge creation, the dissemination of results and societal impact (patenting and licensing). The University supports these activities with a knowledge and technology transfer infrastructure that operates at local, national and international levels. As top research is increasingly applied to major questions in society, the University has formulated three research priorities that will help us make a significant contribution to these questions. They are: Energy, which means solving questions related to innovations in generation, distribution and use of energy; Healthy Ageing, which means focusing on innovation in prevention, care and treatment; and Sustainable Society, which means helping to create and sustain a balanced society. Talent development Talent Development is a core theme at the University. Interested secondary schools can follow pre-university education at our School’s Academy. Our undergraduate students can choose to do a Minor, follow an Honours programme or enter our University College, depending on their interests and talents. Our Master’s students can choose between a regular and a Research Master’s programme and can follow an extra-curricular Honours Programme. Moreover, the faculty Graduate Schools give our Research Master’s students and PhD candidates various opportunities to develop professionally. We have a tenure track system for talented researchers, and our Rosalind Franklin Fellowships are an extra initiative launched to attract talented female researchers. We also provide academic leadership training for our tenured staff, facilitate the further development of teaching quality by UTQ and STQ, and have a Dean of Talent Development, whose job is to scout and support talented researchers in their careers. All our students, PhD candidates and staff can make use of various support facilities, which include an extensive range of courses and special programmes such as our Talent Travel programme. This helps them explore their interests and abilities and plan their next career move, be it inside academia or elsewhere. Education With regard to teaching strategies and the teaching environment, continuous optimization and innovation are essential if we are to meet future demands in a rapidly changing global society. Building on its long tradition of high quality education and pioneering innovation, the University of Groningen has therefore revolutionized its teaching in recent years. We have successfully piloted state-of-the-art educational concepts such as research-driven education, communities of learners, the international classroom and e-learning, and these are now being implemented. This has significantly improved study results and increased student satisfaction. Research The University of Groningen has a strong international reputation for its research. This is reflected in our position in international ranking lists. Our Zernike Institute of Advanced Materials is one of the top two research schools in the Netherlands and we participate in the other one, the Netherlands Research School for Astronomy. Our investment in international interdisciplinary research has resulted in highly esteemed research institutes and groups such as the European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing, the Centre for Synthetic Biology and the Willem Barentsz Polar Institute. Moreover, the University is home to many ERC laureates. Since 2007, over 25 Starting Grants, nine Advanced Grants and four Proof of Concept grants have been awarded to our academics. This places the University of Groningen at the top of the ERC funding list in the Netherlands and among the top universities in Europe. [-]
