Save Central European University / How to help

The Hungarian government has proposed amendments to the National Higher Education Law that would make it impossible for Central European University – and possibly other international institutions – to continue operations within the country.
These changes would endanger the academic freedom vital for CEU’s continued operation in Budapest and would strike a blow against the academic freedom that enables all universities to flourish.
It is time for friends, supporters, and educational and academic communities to defend our institution and the independence of higher education institutions around the globe.
