Members of Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of Sabancı University Support CEU

April 25, 2017

We, the undersigned members of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of Sabancı University, are deeply concerned over the legislation that would render Central European University's continued operations in Budapest virtually impossible and strike a severe blow against academic freedoms that enable all universities to flourish. We have colloborated with CEU on multiple projects and have closely experienced the institution's academic excellence as well as the high quality of its academics and students. We join our voice with many others in calling for the withdrawal of this legislation and for allowing CEU to remain a beacon of academic freedom throughout Europe and the world
