Defense of Academic Freedom is Not a Partisan Issue, CEU Says

Budapest, March 31 -- While CEU has been heartened by the outpouring of support for our university in Hungary and abroad, the defense of our academic freedom is not a partisan political issue. Academic freedom in Hungary and should be the concern of all Hungarian citizens.

If there are any public demonstrations planned by any political organizations, CEU neither instigated, nor supported, nor approved of such activity. It is our sincere hope that all Hungarians can put aside political divisions and join together to defend the freedom of higher education institutions in Hungary.
