I am hereby announcing that I have decided to step down early as rector magnificus of Radboud University in order to provide room for the new rector to lead our beautiful university as part of the Executive Board through the current, difficult period. I am aware that the situation that has arisen stands in the way of a festive 100th anniversary celebration. Together, in recent years, with pleasure and with energy, we've built a university where many people study and work every day and that they can be proud of. I thank colleagues and students for the fine cooperation over the past years and the support I have always been privileged to experience. It makes me sad to say goodbye to you all in this way.
I wish all the employees and students a bright future!
