The Art of Learning

What will we celebrate and why?

A jubilee, a crowning year, the roaring twenties!

Zuyd University of Applied Sciences was founded in 2001 as a result of a number of mergers in the 1980s between various higher education institutions in our region, and was the outcome of the merger between the Limburg and Maastricht universities of applied sciences. In 20 years the Zuyd University of Applied Sciences has grown into the most important HBO knowledge centre in the southern region where students, staff, and our partners meet and cooperate. Cooperation based on education and research on regional themes that affect everyone. They are about our common future with a healthy society, livable districts, a future-proof business community and a circular economy. The Art of Learning is about this, about this connection between young and old, nature, the region, our institutions, governments and businesses. Because: "Everything is Connected"! 

The 20th of each month

We will decorate our buildings inside and out and invite everyone to small and large on- and offline parties. To stay in the spirit of the number 20, we will do this every 20th of the month at all the different Zuyd locations and beyond! One time with our partners, the next time with our staff and/or students. We are not going to forget anyone in this festive year. 

Through our special 20-year Zuyd newsletter, we will keep everyone informed of all activities and send out invitations and calls. Because we do not celebrate alone, we need all our students, staff and partners! So get involved!

A call for everyone in the region and beyond

An easy way to get involved is to share your memories of 20 years Zuyd on Instagram with #20jaarZuyd.
