Let's meet online

of Academic Year

September 29, 2022
10.00 CEST (UTC+2)

Every inauguration of an academic year is a celebration.
It reminds us not only about tradition, the power and the significance of academic values, but also about the community of people united by these values. During the inauguration ceremony, we summarize our achievements and talk about the future.
In 2015, our institution was granted the status of a university with a social sciences and humanities profile. Today, after the announcement of a very positive evaluation of our research and artistic endeavors, we begin a new chapter in the history of our community and the institution. We now have the power to grant doctoral and post-doctoral (habilitacja) degrees in seven sub-disciplines of social sciences, humanities and the arts. By this, we have fulfilled the requirements for maintaining the university status.
I would like to invite you all to join us in this special celebration.
