    Did anayone realize that Tiny van Boekel is the chair person of the selection committee for the new rector? Likely the above list can be reduced to five!

      Sometimes the chairperson of the selection comittee turns out to become the rector. It's uncommon, but there is a precedent: Elmer Sterken of the University of Groningen was chair of his own selection comittee
