Nice to meet you!
My name is Evelyne Meens, PhD
Researcher – Policy advisor – Public speaker
My name is Evelyne Meens and I work as a researcher and policy advisor at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. In my work I focus on students’ individual differences regarding identity, motivation, study career choices, and academic success including students’ wellbeing. My ultimate goal is that students feel safe and cared for within their university environment and free to explore different directions, allowing them to discover what their added value in society can be and what they eventually want out of life.
