I was a member of the Examination Board of the Bachelor Theology (joint degree) on behalf of PThU between 2018-2021, and was involved in the continued development of the curriculum of this joint BA programme in 2018 and 2019. In 2020-2021, I was part of the team that wrote the institutional/strategic plan for the future of the Protestant Theological University.
