Rector Dag Rune Olsen wishes all alumni a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
2016 was the year when UiB Alumni stepped out into the world and became an international organisation.
This year, we have hosted a networking conference for our alumni in Brussels and organised a reception for our alumni during the Transatlantic Forum in Chicago.
I am also incredibly proud to announce that our alumni in Uganda, on their own initiative, have started a local UiB Alumni chapter. Vice-Rector Anne Christine Johannessen had the pleasure of being present at the opening in Kampala in November.
In August, we were present at the annual Arendal Week, and back home in Bergen the annual Alumni Day was the biggest highlight in 2016.
We are very pleased that our alumni give us such good feedback on our events. Your feedback is important to us here at the University of Bergen. Not only will your comments be used for the further development of UiB Alumni, they are also important in terms of what kind of education we will offer our students in the future.
I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
Dag Rune Olsen,
