Carsten Q. Schneider: Our department cherishes critical but constructive thinking

January 19, 2018

When I joined CEU more than 13 years ago, I could not imagine how big an impact the university and my department would have on my life - both as a scholar and a human being. The interesting thing is that this experience of transformation is shared by almost everyone - professors, staff, and students. There is hardly anyone who leaves CEU in the same shape and mindset as she or he has entered it. We at CEU and in particular our department cherish critical but constructive thinking. We teach respect for the other without shying away from debates.
