Sandra, Margo and I started around the same time (a year in between each of us). Sandra was the first of our group to defend her dissertation: Responding to new policy demands: A comparative study of Portuguese and Dutch non-university higher education organizations.
Sandra studied the responses to new policy demands of Portuguese polytechnics and Dutch Hogescholen. These organizations had to deal with new policy demands. However, the response to these demands remained unclear. Sandra explored these responses and wrote several policy demands (but you will know more about this after the defense). If you want to know more about her findings and conclusion, you are more than welcome to attend here defense.
Dr. Sandra 🙂 now works as a consultant for the international office of the VU.
