Prof. Dr. Patrick Nullens will leave his position as Rector of Evangelische Theologische Faculteit, Leuven, at the end of the academic year 2017-2018.

With great gratitude for his inspiration and achievements over the past decade the Board of Trustees accepts his resignation as rector. Drs. Filip De Cavel, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of ETF Leuven: “As Rector Patrick Nullens has played an important role in raising the academic standards of ETF, internationalizing and professionalizing ETF within the protestant evangelical world and in this way has exemplarily embodied the vision of ETF. We will miss him as Rector, but are glad that he remains as professor at ETF.”

Fellow members of the executive team Prof. Dr. Andreas Beck (Academic Dean) and Drs. Gerson Veldhuizen (Administrative Director) will continue the strategic direction of ETF. The Board of Trustees of ETF will consider future form of the rectorate.
