A. (Ab) Smit, with effect from 1 January 2023.

Heart for Zeeland

"As a born and bred Zeeuw, I feel a strong connection with Zeeland. It really appeals to me to work in higher education and especially at HZ University of Applied Sciences. I enjoy working on the future with young and enthusiastic people. The institutional plan and the vision of HZ, 'Contributing to a better world', inspire me. Together with staff and students, I want to give substance to that vision. Through education and practical research, we work together to find solutions to the issues we face as a society."
