Laszlo Kontler, professor in the Department of History was awarded the prestigious title of “egyetemi tanar.” The appointment, made by Janos Ader, the President of Hungary, is effective Febr. 10, 2015.

For this reason, the promotion of a CEU faculty member to this rank is an important step in increasing CEU’s integration into the Hungarian higher education system.
