Remembering Jacques Kaat, Former Leiden Academic Director
Kaat was longtime academic director and faculty member at Webster's Leiden campus.

The Webster University community mourned the passing of Jacques Kaat, former academic director of the Leiden campus in the Netherlands.

Serving as academic director at Webster Leiden from 2000-14, Kaat was instrumental in securing Dutch accreditation and will be remembered as an exceptional leader and friend among colleagues throughout the Webster global network.

A memorial service was held on Nov. 27. Kaat always cared greatly for nature and chose for a completely eco-friendly funeral. His wish was that instead of flowers, flower arrangements, and wreaths, people consider a donation for the World Land Trust.
