Alumni are crucial in helping CEU establish its new base in Vienna. That was new President and Rector Shalini Randeria’s message during an informal meetup with alumni and friends on Thursday, September 16 at the university’s Vienna campus.
The rector noted that, like most alumni, she too started her CEU career in Budapest. However, Vienna is now ‘where we need to build a home.’
The rector, who made history last summer by becoming the first-ever female to lead CEU, helped establish the university’s Department of Anthropology and Sociology in the 1990s.
