UCAA Newsletter May 2011

Dear alumni,

Upcoming events
On the 20th of May your regional representative in London has organized a great dinner and drinks, so if you’re in the area and want to meet up with fellow UC alumni, go to the Facebook event page for more info and how to sign up.

We are also excited to announce that the first annual alumni reunion and scholarship dinner will take place on the 30th of September. More details about the event here and as it approaches, but be sure to mark it down in your agendas already, because it’s going to be big and you don’t want to miss it.

Board vacancy PR/External Representative
After two and a half years of hard work and dedication to the UCAA, Somaye Dehban (’07) will be leaving our board. We will miss her tireless efforts very much, but this does mean that there is a new board vacancy for you to apply to! The PR/External Representative position provides you with first-hand experience in areas like promotion, fundraising, and team work, is partly paid and serves as a great resume builder. For more information on the position and how to apply, check out our vacancies page here. Deadline for application is May 30th, 2011.

UCAA blog
For updates on past events like last month’s excellent Career Day and UCU Festival, be sure to follow the UCAA blog (you can even subscribe for notifications every time a new item is posted). New reports, photos and videos are posted on a fairly regular basis, so be sure to check back often. And if you have anything to contribute for any of the items or events, be sure to leave a comment or send us an e-mail.

Willem Albert Wagenaar passed away
As a final point, some sad news. Last month word reached us that UCU’s former dean Willem Albert Wagenaar has passed away at the age of 69. Professor Wagenaar served as dean of UCU in 2003 and 2004, after which he continued to teach the very popular ‘Psychology in the Courtroom’ course on our campus. The UCAA is very much saddened to hear of his passing and sends its heartfelt condolences to his friends, family and all the many students, teachers and alumni on whose lives he has had an impact.

Sincerely yours,

The UCAA Board
