Alumnus Lőrincz Passes

May 5, 2021

We are saddened to report the passing of CEU alumnus József Lőrincz (SOCI ’92, Romania) last month. He was 64 years old. 

József was a lecturer at the Faculty of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences of Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj. In addition to his degree from CEU, he earned his doctorate from the European University Institute in Florence. 

A graduate of CEU’s early generation, József was among the professors in Transylvania who signed an open letter to the Hungarian government in support of CEU during the LexCEU crisis of 2017. 

Our deepest condolences to József’s family, friends, colleagues and classmates. He will be missed.
