Course Content

We think the university of the future will need to be a place for developing talents and creativity. It will need to encourage and empower students to take initiative and develop leadership skills. Learning will need to cross the limits between faculties and disciplines, the limits between the university and the society around it. It will need to be based on action and reflection. What is your vision of the university of the future? Are you ready to make your vision a reality? Then you should join us on this learning journey.The aim of this course is to develop the ChangeBox as a place for students to reflect and create their vision of a university of the future. The participants of this course will take leadership in developing the ChangeBox into a campus hub for students, change projects and student initiatives focused on social responsibility and sustainable development.In this course you will develop activities in the following areas:

  • develop and discuss your vision of a university of the future
  • build a team that runs the ChangeBox
  • develop a programme of educational, social and cultural events
  • communicate and market the ChangeBox on campus and beyond (e.g. website, social media, newsletter, offline events)

Workshops and coachingwill providethe necessary skills.

Participants learn to take a leadership role in developing and implementing a student led vision of the university of the future.
