February saw the formation of ENGAGE.EU’s Board of Learners (BoL). The Board will represent the interests of our learners’ group, which consists of over 100K students, alumni/ae, and lifelong learners.
Here, each member institution has a delegation of two representatives, which amounts to a total of 14 BoL members. One BoL member holds a seat on ENGAGE.EU’s Governing Board, and two further members take part in the Executive Committee.
Marco Rupp (Political Science, University of Mannheim) was elected Chair of the Board of Learners. Marco has been closely involved with ENGAGE.EU right from the project’s start:
I am really happy it has now become reality. I have great confidence looking towards the new tasks ahead of me.Marco Rupp, BoL Chair
