Petition to save newspaper

Last Monday, the University Council at Utrecht University started a petition to save the paper version of the university newspaper.

The Executive Board has decided that the Ublad will only be available on a digital platform as of 31 December. The University Council reacted to the news with 'surprise and disbelief'. The Council thinks it is unacceptable for a university not to have an independent physical newspaper.
