Philip Eijlander Diversity Program

The Philip Eijlander Diversity Program has increased the inflow of (inter)national women in higher academic positions, by creating 19 extra positions on the level of full, associate and assistant professor. These talented scientists advance the research agendas of all five the Schools. The overall goal is an inclusive work climate where quality prevails.

Ivo van Leeuwen

Tilburg-based artist Ivo van Leeuwen (1969) is a graphic artist, painter, and illustrator, specializing in portraits. As a technique he uses the linocut, where an image is 'cut out' in a piece of linoleum.
