The Past Cumulus Executive Boards and Presidents 2001-2016

Cumulus thanks its past board members for their precious contribution to the association and its members, partners. We wish to connect forever!

Cumulus International Association of Universities founded in 1990 turned operationally to act as an association in the General Assembly in 21 March 2001 in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. We collaborated as a network also supported by the European Union Erasmus program until its redesign in 1996. The members continued since 1996 as a growing European network until the first Cumulus General Assembly in 2001 and further. In 2006, Cumulus became an international association in the General Assembly held in Nantes France. The board members and the president can act maximum of two 3-year periods and are subject to election in the General Assembly.
