By the decision of the Selection Committee, Professor Andras Sajo and Professor Renata Uitz, from the Department of Legal Studies have been selected as the recipients of the 2018 CEU Award for Outstanding Research. The award recognizes outstanding research by CEU faculty that has had a significant international impact.
CEU has expanded its academic activities in New York in cooperation with Bard College, with second-year students in CEU’s MA in International Relations program studying with CEU faculty alongside internships at well-known international organizations. The students earn credit toward their U.S.-accredited degree.
Gender equality is an integral part of CEU’s foundational values of an open society. CEU is strongly committed to ensuring that its faculty, staff and students are treated and respected equally regardless of their gender identity. To enhance its commitment towards gender equality, in June 2018 CEU joined the Supporting the Promotion of Equality in Research and Academia European initiative (SUPERA project).
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and CEU colleague Marianne Saghy, founding faculty member of the Department of Medieval Studies, on September 21. Marianne taught and wrote in her chosen field of late antique and medieval cult of saints and religious culture, with a passion that easily drew the interest of her students and colleagues. She will be sorely missed.
Judit Sandor, professor in the Departments of Political Science, Legal and Gender Studies and director of the Center for Ethics and Law in Biomedicine (CELAB) at CEU, was elected a Governor of the World Association of Medical Law (WAML) at the 24th WAML Annual Congress held September 2-6 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The number of visitors at CEU during the European Heritage Days held on September 15 and 16 more than doubled compared to last year, with our youngest and most active audience so far.
CEU joined the Cultural Heritage Days for the sixth time in 2018 to showcase its built heritage to the broader community as well as the CEU community. CEU originally advertised eight guided tours in English and in Hungarian, three concerts, an exhibition, and an urban game, but due to the high turnout twice as many guided tours had to be started.
Soon after his CEU Summer University course ended, Cristian Lupsa, a participant of the “Funding Journalism in the Digital Age” course posted this on Facebook to his fellow participants:
“Hey all. Hope you're still running on the Budapest buzz! I still am.”
