Henk Schoot new Director of the Thomas Instituut te Utrecht (Tilburg University)

As of 1 September 2009 professor Henk Schoot has been appointed Director of the Thomas Instituut te Utrecht (Tilburg University) by the dean of the Faculty of Catholic Theology of Tilburg University.
Since 1995 professor Herwi Rikhof had been director of the institute. Recently he decided to change some of his responsibilities as professor at the Department Systematic Theology and Philosophy. As professor Henk Schoot has taken over some of his tasks and as he is also professor on the Chair for Theology of Thomas, the task as Director of the Thomas Instituut has been entrusted to him.

The Thomas Instituut te Utrecht owes professor Rikhof very many thanks for his dedication and inspiration as director of the institute in the last 14 years. During his time as director many publications of the institute saw the light and several days of study, as well as two international conferences have been held.

We congratulate professor Schoot with his appointment and wish him alle the best for his directorship at the Thomas Instituut te Utrecht (Tilburg University).


Dr. Cristina Pumplun,
Secretary of Studies at the Thomas Instituut te Utrecht (Tilburg University)
