Thomas Instituut now interuniversity institute: dr. Cristina Pumplun new secretary of studies

Since March 7, 2000 the Thomas Instituut has got the status of an interuniversity institute.
Recently the boards of the Catholic Theological University at Utrecht and the Tilburg Faculty of Theology gave their final consent. To mark the occasion this will be celebrated officially during the congress in December.

So far dr. Henk Schoot, secretary of studies, dedicated a lot of his time to deal with the main responsibilities of the Thomas Instituut, i.e. the organisation and co-ordination of the research programme, the publication of the Yearbook etc.The increase of duties connected with the establishment of a larger interuniversitary institute however made it necessary to engage an officially paid secretary of studies.

Therefore in September 2000 dr. Cristina Pumplun was appointed. Among other things she will be responsible for the organisation of seminars and congresses, the editing of the Yearbook, the maintenance of the web-site and the research facilities as well as the planning and co-ordination of the research conducted by the members of the institute.
