(Belated) Dies Natalis - Shaping Change
On June 16, the celebration of our 94th Dies Natalis will take place. During the celebration, three honorary doctorates will be awarded. Reflecting on change and the future is the theme of the Dies speech that will be delivered by the former Chief Government Architect, architect Floris Alkemade.
During the celebration, the previously announced honorary doctorates will be awarded to Prof. Mary E. Barth (Professor of Accounting, Stanford University), and to Prof. Christine Moorman (Professor of Marketing, Duke University). Professor Philip Joos and Professor Inge Geyskens, respectively, will act as honorary supervisor.
Professor Tom Smeets will act as honorary supervisor of Prof. James Gross (Professor of Psychology, also Stanford University), whose honorary doctorate is also in the perspective of 50 years of research and teaching in psychology at our university, to which we pay special attention in this academic year.
The society we seek to study and understand is undergoing significant changes. Reflecting on change and the future is the theme of the Dies speech, which will be delivered by the former Chief Government Architect, Floris Alkemade. Tilburg University is honored that he wants to inspire and encourage our academic community with this speech.
Reception in the Foyer
There will be an opportunity to congratulate the honorary doctorates and to continue the conversation about Floris Alkemade's speech during the reception in the Foyer of the Cobbenhagen Building, which will start immediately after the Dies Natalis.
