New faculty of central European studies

THE ACADEMIC senate of Nitra's Constantine the Philosopher University has decided to open a faculty of central European studies for students of various local minority nationalities.

"We want to improve the quality of education for minorities," said the university's president, Daniel Kluvanec.

"At the faculty we will educate students from the central European region, including students of Hungarian, German, Rusyn, Polish as well as Czech nationalities," said the president.

The project, however, does not yet have financial backing, and to open the faculty the university will need new premises, which would cost around Sk70 million ($1.5 million). The faculty's expected budget for next year is Sk27 million.

The university therefore doubts that the new faculty will be opened in the upcoming school year, which starts in September 2002.
