We can do a lot of good things
"I have a heart for good education. As an administrator, you have to wake up every morning with the awareness that everything you do that day is for the students and staff. I also think that the connection you have as an educational institution with the outside world is very important. The HZ has that as a basis, especially with the themes of water, energy and vitality. These are the Zeeland subjects. There are a lot of interesting questions surrounding these themes.
We can do a lot of good things and we must continue to show that. In this way, we can retain talent in Zeeland and hopefully attract new ones. There are a lot of opportunities because of the social transitions that are currently taking place. As the personal university of applied sciences that HZ is, a small and agile institution, we can respond extra well and seize all opportunities."
