CIVICA universities support initiatives on Ukraine

CIVICA – The European University of Social Sciences stands in solidarity with Ukraine and supports all those affected by the terrible military aggression.

The Russian government's attack on Ukraine poses unprecedented geopolitical challenges to the security and the wellbeing of the European continent.

The CIVICA alliance and its member universities are committed to acting as an open university dedicated to fostering respectful dialogue, to the protection of academic freedom, autonomy and knowledge exchange, and to the fundamental EU values of justice, tolerance and solidarity.

Equally moved in this spirit, the CIVICA member universities - including the two new added partners IE University and SGH Warsaw School of Economics - are actively working to support all those who are currently at risk. You can find the initiatives and activities in solidarity with Ukraine, launched and supported by the CIVICA universities below.
