On Saturday 16 June, a UU-boat participated in the Utrecht Canal Pride. The crew was a diverse group of people, consisting of employees, students and alumni. The UU-boat was a joint initiative of a number of UU employees and students of the University College Utrecht (UCU). A total of 100 seats were available. The boat received a grant from the Stimulation Fund of the Diversity Task Force and the UCU, and the participants each made a personal contribution.
The Utrecht Canal Pride offers a beautiful occasion to showcase the city Utrecht University stands for: bridging chasms and creating equality of opportunity.
