Huib de Jong to remain on until end of the academic year

22 Apr 2020 13:30 | Communication

Huib de Jong will continue as Executive Board Chairman of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) until 1 September 2020. His departure was originally planned for 1 July 2020.

The AUAS Supervisory Board has asked Huib de Jong - with the full support of the representative advisory council - to stay on until the end of the current academic year. The corona crisis and the uncertainty about its duration pose great challenges for everyone, including the AUAS.

The Supervisory Board is very grateful that Huib de Jong is willing to continue in his role and to therefore offer the Executive Board stability during these uncertain times. This enables a fully staffed Board to prepare for and organise the transition to the upcoming academic year.

The procedure for recruiting a new chairperson continues. The AUAS will organise an appropriate farewell event for Huib de Jong after the start of the new academic year. More information on this will follow in due course.
