Wittenborg family gets bigger
Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences is adding two new members, Pauline Verheijen-Dop and Timothy Mescon, to its Academic Advisory Board. The board is a consultative body for the school, providing guidance on academic affairs, research, and teaching, ensuring that each programme is relevant and of top quality.
Pauline Verheijen-Dop, a seasoned legal expert, brings a wealth of expertise to the board. Working for over a decade in law and management, she is also a member of the SER Topvrouwen organisation along with Wittenborg CEO Maggie Feng. "Pauline has been part of the extended Wittenborg family for years through her father," explains Feng. "Jan-Albert Dop is still greatly missed and often mentioned at executive level. We are thrilled that we have Pauline now joining us to become an even closer member of the family, representing connections with large corporations as well as SER Topvrouwen. I am looking forward to working with her closely."
Joining Pauline is Timothy Mescon, who brings an array of international experience to the role. Timothy has held various leadership positions in academia, including that of Executive Vice President and Chief Officer Europe, Middle East and Africa for the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. His experience in building global partnerships, ensuring academic quality and promoting the crucial importance of higher education will also be a great asset to the board. Recently, Mescon also became chair of Wittenborg’s International Academic Advisory Panel.
Commenting on Mescon’s appointment, Wittenborg President Peter Birdsall enthuses, "We are thrilled to have Tim on the board. His expertise will no doubt be key as we continuously develop our academic programmes to prepare students for professional success." On 18 March, the Academic Advisory Board will convene at the Brinklaan campus in Apeldoorn for an annual meeting. The board will discuss a wide range of topics and will review the university's current academic programmes to assess their effectiveness and relevance while identifying areas for improvement and growth.
