The University of Bordeaux in solidarity with the Ukrainian people

Message from University President Dean Lewis about the situation in Ukraine.

  • 01/03/2022

The University of Bordeaux expresses its solidarity with the Ukrainian people and its support for all those people, academics and students, whose lives, scientific activities and study projects are currently put at risk by the armed conflict.

Our community has watched with great concern the dramatic developments in Ukraine. We feel particularly concerned about the situation of the students and researchers of the University of Bordeaux, but also that of the Ukrainian staff, researchers and students currently living on our territory. We will provide them with all the support we can, with material assistance and by activating our networ ks of solidarity.

In this dramatic context, I wish to reaffirm the unfailing commitment of the University of Bordeaux to democracy, academic freedom and, more generally, to a humanist and peaceful vision of society.

Dean Lewis,
President of the University of Bordeaux
