The Faculty Board warmly invites all staff and students to celebrate the start of the academic year '22-'23 live at the Pieter de la Court Building.

  • 16:30 hrs: Faculty opening of the academic year and talkshow
  • 17:00 hrs: drinks in the central hall

N.B. To increase accessibility and inclusion the opening and talkshow will be in English.


The talkshow will be hosted by our Dean Paul Wouters. Several guests will start the conversation on subjects that concern our entire Faculty, such as the vision and strategy plan, innovative research methods and the role of students in the community.

Our guests are:

  • Arjaan Wit (senior lecturer at the Institute of Psychology)
