About the University

I would like to wish all members of the academic community of Charles University in Prague, teachers, students and all employees, a happy and peaceful Easter. I firmly believe that the upcoming holiday period will give us all an opportunity to take a break from the merry-go-round of modern life and find time for contemplation, amongst our nearest and dearest, of the point of our existence and the real values that we often forget in the hustle and bustle of everyday life due to our professional, and other, responsibilities.

About the University

It is with great regret that Charles University follows the current events in Ukraine. We are outraged to hear of the use of violence, which has resulted in dozens of fatalities and hundreds of injured. The practices used are entirely incompatible with the basic values of European civilization. We therefore make an appeal for a political solution to the current crisis.

About the University

Karolinum Press has become the first Czech publisher to link up with ebrary, the global distributor of specialist monographs in electronic form. Starting in April 2014, it will disseminate e-books via university libraries. A total of sixty-seven e-books published by Karolinum Press are currently available through ebrary. By the end of 2014 Karolinum Press plans to make over 200 titles available as e-books.

International Cooperation

CU Rector Tomáš Zima has received American Fulbright scholars currently studying and teaching at Charles University. At the meeting, which took place in the Carolinum on Monday 14 April, the scholars discussed their research interests and their experiences with Czech students.
