Hans P.M. Adriaansens (born 1946, Middelburg) is dean of the Roosevelt Academy, a small liberal arts college in Middelburg, the Netherlands.



Hans Adriaansens attended gymnasium in Breda and graduated cum laude in sociology at the Tilburg University. After a stay at Harvard University, he also completed his doctoral dissertation cum laude at Tilburg University.

Education Innovator

Unhappy with the undemanding and large scale climate of university education in the Netherlands, Professor Hans Adriaansens started developing the idea of a small scale and academically intensive undergraduate college in the Netherlands. This resulted in University College Utrecht in 1998 and in the Roosevelt Academy in 2004.

Membership of organizations

Next to his demanding job as dean of the Roosevelt Academy, Professor Adriaansens currently serves as chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Antonius-Mesos Group and of two hospitals in the Utrecht region. He is also a member of the Board of Trustees of both the Hogeschool van Utrecht and the Hogeschool Zeeland. He furthermore participates in various government committees in the field of higher education and social development.


In 2002 Adriaansens was awarded the silver medal of Utrecht University for university innovation. In 2004 he became officer in the Order of Oranje-Nassau.
