 New Communications Officer

 ​UCR is very excited to welcome Marieke van de Laar as its new SIREE Communications Officer.

Marieke will be coordinating and executing the communications policy for a large European project UCR has been involved in since the beginning of 2018: SIREE. SIREE stands for ‘Social Integration of Refugees through Education and Self Employment’. The project aims to improve the social and economic integration of refugees by co-creating and introducing new demonstrations to increase the engagement of refugees in the education process and to improve the economic independence of refugees through self-employment. 

Marieke is one of many alumni returning to Middelburg to work at UCR. She was part of the Class of 2007, the very first group of students to start at the Roosevelt. She says: “I am very excited to work on this challenging project, and happy to be back at UCR!” 

The website of the SIREE project can be found here. Marieke can be reached at
