Vacation Days For Societal Impact

by Djoerd Hiemstra, Mariëlle Winkler, Joe Laufer, Susanne de Gooijer

UT employees feeling a social responsibility to e.g. teach the underprivileged, start a buddy project or help  in an unverdeveloped country, don’t always have enough vacation days to do this all by themselves. But what if the whole UT community donates some days, will it be possible for the individual to use some months from this ‘pool’? This is good for the employee, good for the societal impact of the university and good for society as a whole.
