The AUV Day is the annual members’ day of the University of Amsterdam Alumni Association AUV. Admission is free for AUV members.
What does an AUV Day look like?
AUV Day usually takes place in November. In 2017 the program consisted of an inspiring lecture by UvA alumni Frits Spangenberg and Monte Königs on how different generations deal with morality. President of the Executive Board Geert ten Dam presented the annual AUV Alumni Award to three young UvA alumni. With her Healthy Teeth Challenge project, Alice Grasveld won first prize and the sum of €3,000. Second prize and €2,000 went to Rutger Bults for Grounded Madagascar. Third prize and €1,000 was won by Ottilia Kasbergen for her initiative Vluchteling voor de klas (Refugee Teachers).
Two new alumni circles were launched: the International Alumni Network Netherlands (IANN) and the Amsterdam Society for Medical Social Scientists (ASMSS). Both circles communicate with their members in English. The day was closed off with an informal reception.
