EPP Leader Weber Visits CEU Rector Ignatieff

March 12, 2019

Budapest, March 12, 2019 — Leader of the European People’s party (EPP) Manfred Weber met today with Central European University (CEU) Rector Michael Ignatieff in his office. Mr Weber wished to discuss how to ensure that CEU can continue to operate in Hungary as a US-accredited institution. CEU supports Mr. Weber’s initiative and awaits the outcome of discussions between Mr. Orban and Mr. Weber. Since the Hungarian government’s legislation forbids CEU to accept new students to its US accredited programs, CEU is continuing with its program to open US degree operations in Vienna next academic year.
