Andy 'Leaks' Documents
—stuff the EUR does not want you to know?—
February 1, 2011

This page holds many, if not all of the documents regarding the discontinuation of the Bachelor of Science program in Economics & Informatics (E&I) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). Most of the files are letters sent by the EUR Vice-Chancellor (Rector Magnificus), the EUR University Council and the Dean of the Erasmus School of Economics. These letters contain agreements and promises regarding both the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science program of E&I. Additionally, you will find minutes of University Council meetings and their committee on Education, Research & Student Affairs (Commissie OOS: Onderwijs, Onderzoek & Studentenzaken). These minutes give an insight in what the involved members thought about discontinuing E&I.

As a bonus, minutes of ESE School Council meetings are included during which the discontinuation has been discussed. Here, among other things, you can read what promises the dean has made.

The reason I have decided to post these files here is because they suddenly disappeared from the website they were supposed to be on, which is Past years I have contacted the EUR Legal Department stating the website lacks documents, but to no avail - currently the website is even empty! The subtitle 'Stuff the EUR does not want you to know?' is therefore a joke.

All documents on this website are considered public by Dutch Legislation and should be 'easily' retrievable by every Dutch citizen. In these modern times, it should go without saying that University Council documents should be accessible online. Because the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) failed to accomplish this fairly easy task, this website now contains documents regarding the discontinuation of E&I.

The .rar file, downloadable below, contains a collection of files as described above. Due to the large file size (18.8MB) it is recommended to right-click on the link below and select 'Save as'.

The Faculteit der Economische Wetenschappen (FEW) has recently translated its name to English with Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) to propagate itself as an 'international institution'. That is why all official democratic and organizational documents are in the Dutch language.

UPDATE - Dec 12, 2011 7:34am (ET)  
The Community: "How is it going?"
The University Council: "Ow, same old same old."

The university council of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) appears to be the most retired within oneself of the whole country. After more than 10 (ten) months there is still no trace whatsoever of any documentation on their website. Below you see a screenshot of the new webdesign, but the content as familiar as ever.
New content appears on the U-raad website!

NOTE: All documents are in Dutch — 'and are therefore not meant for international students..?'
