Rik Torfs, who was Rector Magnificus at KU Leuven between 2013 and 2017, will be a guest speaker at the Opening of the Academic Year today. He will discuss his vision where people, not the managerial principles, are the central stage of the university. He will also stress the importance of a more visible role of the university in society, for example by participating in social debates.
