March of the mace-bearers

Wageningen’s three mace-bearers, Ines de la Mar, Arianne van Wijk and Renata Michel lead a procession of more than 60 fellow officials.

On 5 April they processed up the High Street from the aula to the steps of the city hall, where an official photograph was taken. This was the first time the annual meeting of mace-bearers from Dutch and Flemish universities was held in Wageningen. A mace-bearer is responsible for academic ceremonies including PhD defences, inaugural lectures and Founders’ days.
