Supervisory Board


The KEI foundation consists of several different parts. Next to the Executive Board, the Supervisory Board plays a vital role in the organisation of the whole KEI foundation as well as the KEI week. The Supervisory Board holds final responsibility for everything that happens during the KEI-week. They control and advise the Executive Board and write long-term policies for the KEI foundation to continuously improve the foundation. The Supervisory board has to approve the policy written by the Executive Board, the budget plan and all the annual reports written. Once a month, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board meet to discuss the policy and progress made by the Executive Board. 

The Supervisory Board represents all the different sectors of student life in Groningen, such as culture, sports-associations, student associations, international affairs, the University of Groningen, the Hanze University of Applied Sciences and ex-members of the daily board. With this mixed group of members, all facets of the Groningen student life is covered and the Supervisory board aims to promote continuous growth and improvement within the KEI-week.

Can I receive a refund if I have paid but choose not to attend the KEI-week or KEI-hostel/Sleep-in?

It’s not possible to claim a refund for any previously paid for ‘articles’ such as a ticket for the KEI-week or a place to sleep during the KEI-week (KEI-hostel, Sleep in). We advise you to wait with your registration until you are accepted at the university/school. We don’t have a maximum of participants for the KEI-week, so you can always sign up online for the KEI-week until the 9th of August. However, we don’t have an unlimited amount of places to sleep, so we can’t guarantee a place to sleep if you wait too long.

What is the deadline for registration?

Online registration is possible until Friday the 9th of August. During the KEI-week you can also sign up on Monday during the Day Registration. If you are not able to sign up before Monday evening, you can sign up at the KEI-office located at Pelsterstraat 23, during the rest of the week.

Can you join the same KEI-group as a friend?

Yes, it is possible to sign up with a friend for the KEI-week. Mention this in the registration form and you will be placed in the same KEI-group.
