Faculty Newsletter

Editorial: Changing faculty communication

Dear colleagues, students,

We are delighted that you have just started reading the first faculty newsletter of 2022. We would like to start by extending our warmest greetings and wishing you all the best in the New Year!

Exactly one year ago at this point, we looked back at the transformations in faculty communication necessitated by the pandemic situation. It resulted in unprecedented online traffic that gave rise, among other things, to this regular newsletter. Even these days, the topic of faculty communication transformations is still relevant, but this time it is the activities related to the HR Award we received last year that are behind them. One of the main goals of this project is to create a friendly environment for top foreign researchers and international research teams at the faculty. For this, it is essential that a bilingual information system is in place and that all relevant information reaches the faculty in English. Bilingualism is therefore increasingly permeating internal faculty communication: faculty regulations have been translated, minutes of management and Dean's Board meetings, mass e-mails from the Dean's Office have been translated into English for some time, and our faculty newsletter is also published in two languages.

We believe that these changes will contribute to the greater involvement of not only foreign researchers but also students in faculty life and to the emergence of universitas in the true sense of the word.
