Condemnation of the invasion

“It is with sorrow that we are following what is happening in Ukraine. We support the Swedish Government’s condemnation of the invasion. We are looking at how we can help the students and staff who may have been negatively affected,” says Vice-Chancellor Maria Knutson Wedel. 

Read the Vice-Chancellor's blog post where she puts the unimaginable into words and emphazises that our academic values and democratic principles will be more important than ever.
