What does the Campus Poet do?

The Campus Poet comments poetically, both on request and at his/her own initiative, on campus life, studying, and science and on current themes in society, emotions, and life in general. Poems are published in Univers a few times a year and are presented live during various Academic Forum events and at large events like Night University. The Campus Poet also initiates and organizes activities in the area of poetry and the spoken word in collaboration with Academic Forum and Univers. In this way, the Campus Poet promotes a lively literary climate on campus.

The Campus Poet receives a stipend of € 500 for his/her activities in the course of the year.

The election is open to Tilburg University students and staff. A condition for participation is that you will work or study on the campus for the entire year 2018. Staff must be formally employed by Tilburg University and students must be registered as a Tilburg University student.
