105 years of Masaryk University

Dear colleagues,

This year marks the 105th anniversary of the founding of our almae matris, Masaryk University. The Faculty of Arts MU was one of the four founding faculties and had to deal with several obstacles and challenges even before it started teaching and admitting its first students. One hundred five years is nothing in terms of eternity, but in terms of the institution's development, we have perhaps already reached the age of a toddler. From a human perspective, however, it is a period that transcends an individual's life horizon. So, as we celebrate the 105th anniversary of our college and university founding, let us remember the need for prudent and patient work in the present so that future generations can remember us with the same pride and humility with which we now place our founders and predecessors.

Vivat Universitas Masarykiana, vivat Facultas Philosophica, vivant Artes liberales.

Zdeňka Jastrzembská
Vice-Dean for Admissions and Public Relations
