I think the time is right for internationalizing not only our research, teaching and outlook but also our internal representation.
Anne Meuwese, Tilburg Law School
I am more than happy to endorse the initiative to start the TiU International Party. Not just because of the initial starting point -internationalization- which I fully support. Just as important for me is that it really shows that academic staff -our university’s main asset- are eager to become more actively involved in TiU decision-making.

I support the new list for the university council very much !! Especially the item about rethinking tearing down W building. During budget cut time, more funding should be spent on hiring more faculties, rather than building new mansion or upgrading new screens in library. Hope you can bring new air to the university !!! Let me know if there is anything more I can do to support.
Ruixin Wang, Ph.D. student in Economics
Great initiative, which I fully endorse. Good luck!
