Last year a PhD candidate had to tear his acknowledgment out of his dissertation because of statements about God. Recently the promotion regulations changed, PhD candidates are allowed to acknowledge experienced support but they are not allowed to do any religious statement.
Prof. dr. ir. Johan van Arendonk, chair of the board of deans, will clarify the change in the regulations. After that prof. dr. ir. Henk Jochemsen, professor in Christian philosophy, will give a reflection. At the end there will be some room for the public to ask questions.
