On November 10 European Humanities University (EHU) President Prof. Anatoli Mikhailov met Chargé d'affaires Beth Richardson of the Office of the Embassy of Canada to Lithuania in order to discuss the progress of EHU’s development in Vilnius.
During the meeting, Prof. Mikhailov presented the current achievements of the University and emphasized the importance of Humanities and Liberal Arts education in transforming the post-totalitarian reality in the region of Eastern Europe.
According to Prof. Mikhailov: “25 years passed after the collapse of the Soviet Union - yet we are still in the process of bringing Belarus and its neighborhood to the intellectual map of Europe. This is the commitment of EHU’s academic community towards our supporters and our Homeland - Belarus”.
With the newly-developed Core Curriculum and its study programs EHU aims at providing young Belarusian students with high quality education, which will empower them to build networks and bridges between Belarus and the Western world.
“I am pleased to have had the opportunity to hear directly from President Mikhailov the achievements of the European Humanities University during its last decade of work in Lithuania, and I am confident that the university will continue to play an important role” – stressed Chargé d'affaires B. Richardson.
