We are very proud to celebrate our 50th anniversary together with all our authors, editors, series boards, readers, and partners who have supported us over the years.
"Working with Leuven University Press has been a very positive experience. The team was highly professional and accompanied every step in the development of my book project with great dedication and care. I was especially impressed by the quality of the book design and the efforts made to promote my book internationally. My experience in working with Leuven University Press convinced me that this is one of the most professional university presses in continental Europe."
Jeroen Dewulf, Queen Beatrix Professor in Dutch Studies, University of California, Berkeley
"I have worked with a number of publishers over the years but have never experienced such courtesy and efficiency. The press is a very smoothly run operation."
Simon Dell, University of East Anglia

Patrick Degryse, KU Leuven
"For 50 years Leuven University Press has been a true heir to the profound wisdom enshrined in Virgil’s Aeneid: mens agitat molem. Leuven University Press has done so by offering and supporting high quality scholarly communication and insights in a rigorous and lasting way."
Koenraad Debackere, Professor, KU Leuven
"Together with Guido De Clercq, General Manager of the KU Leuven in 1971, we took the initiative to create Leuven University Press. Guido De Clercq became its first General Manager and I its first Chairman of the Board of Trustees. When Guido left the University in 1982, I was elected General Manager (1982-1985). The Press started as a small, delicate sapling grafted onto the university's solid values, and thanks to the efforts of Guido and the dedication and competence of its staff, initially in particular Hilde Lens and Beatrice Van Eeghem, Leuven University Press grew into a sturdy and flourishing tree: a very successful Press with a high international scientific reputation. My warmest congratulations!"
Herman Van der Wee, Professor Emeritus, KU Leuven
