Marieke Veenstra is an alumnus of the EUR, who graduated in history and sociology. During her studies she discovered her interest in organisation development and change processes. Marieke started her career at a large consultancy firm. After that she worked at the University of Amsterdam as marketeer and as an operations manager for ten years. She has been back at the EUR since 2000, at first as director of operations of a faculty and since 2011 as programme manager of large strategic programs. The first programme was about improving education support systems and processes. The implementation of Osiris was our most important project. In the next program, Digital is the New Normal, we created a user-friendly digital learning environment with Canvas and MyEUR.
We continued the collaboration with the faculties and service departments in the Community for Learning & Innovation. Working together on change and improving processes is my passion and that is what CLI is all about. She is proud of the strong network that we have built which is focused on future oriented education. Together we will improve education!
