Marlie van Dun

My name is Marlie van Dun and I am Director of International Affairs at NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences (NHTV). Before obtaining this position about 10 years ago, I  already had 15 years of experience working in several areas of internationalisation at NHTV Breda, an institute which has been at the forefront of  international cooperation since the 1980s. I feel fortunate to be part of such an inspiring and dynamic organisation offering me the ideal environment to keep developing my skills and experience in international networking  and connecting people.  My work for NHTV involves developing, implementing and monitoring international strategic plans (including budgeting and financial accounting) as well as managing international partnerships.  Described by my colleagues as reliable, dedicated, proactive, diplomatic and decisive, I am committed to fostering cross-cultural awareness across all sections of our organisation. I consider membership of the General Council as an excellent opportunity to share my experience and insights with the EAIE leadership so as to support them in making well-considered decisions and to help the association in setting the right agenda, both for its members and for international higher education in general. It would be a tremendous honour!
