Yee Visits With Students From CEU, Other Local Universities

April 11, 2017

U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Hoyt Yee visited CEU yesterday to speak with CEU President and Rector Michael Ignatieff and students from CEU, ELTE, Andrassy University Budapest and Corvinus University. Yee listened to students' opinions on academic freedom and the effects of amendments made last week to Hungarian law that threaten CEU's operations in Hungary. 

Yee held a press conference in Budapest on April 11, where he said that "the United States is concerned by this legislation ... because it targets (CEU) very clearly and threatens ... this important American Hungarian institution."
