The quality of our educational programs is partly dependent on the university's facilities. 2015 saw the launch of the 'Claim Your Chair' project, aimed at raising money for the renovation of a number of lecture rooms at the campus. Almost 200 alumni, employees and others claimed a chair.
Your name and an inspiring quote in a room full of Nyenrodians? For the small price of 500 euros or more, you get to claim a chair in our The Rooij building. Your chair will have a small plaque with your name and quote on it, visible for whomever is sitting on your chair! Depending on availability, you may choose who you would like to be next to. And of course, you may try to secure your favorite spot in the room.
Due to our successful campaign with our donors, the last available chairs in De Rooij 101 and 104 have been claimed. This means we have raised enough donations to modernize another lecture room. Did you want to claim a chair, but were you just a little too late? Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning 'Waitlist Claim Your Chair' and we will contact you when we continue the project in another lecture room.
A lot of people victimize themselves, but the truth is this. We will be faced with hardship. There will be good and bad days. But how we decide to see them and what we decide to do is what shapes our life.
“It was a privilege for me to be invited to donate chairs for Nyenrode Business Universiteit!”
Emeritus hoogleraar Filantropie
“It was a privilege for me to be invited to donate chairs for Nyenrode Business Universiteit. Now it is up to me to invite my friends with a Nyenrode background to experience the same emotion. I can assure them: a solid and functional chair facilitates academic learning for the generations after us.”
