As of 1 April 2020, the Executive Board of the University of Twente has reappointed Professor Theo Toonen as Dean of the Faculty of Behavioral, Management and Social Sciences (BMS).
Professor Toonen has been Dean of the faculty since 2015. His appointment would formally end on 1 April, 2020. During the past years, Theo Toonen has been committed to restructuring the then-merged faculty under the idea of “BMS under steam,” and to strengthening the technological profile of the social sciences in the faculty. Given the current developments in a new mission, vision and strategy of the university, the Executive Board would like to see continuity in the management of the faculty and therefore asks Toonen to continue working on the developments of BMS.
His reappointment will apply until 1 April 2022. With his reappointment as Dean, he has also been reappointed as a member of the BMS Faculty Board for the same period. This also applies to his appointment as Professor of Institutional Governance.
