The rector of the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) on Monday addressed a letter to the academic community of his institution, warning that its ongoing occupation by the students and supporters “has created conditions that will have a long effect on its smooth educational, research and administrative operation.”
AUEB Rector Konstantinos Gatsios underlined that considering that the university remains closed for a third week, “we should warn the students that according to the law, any extension of the present situation would seriously jeopardise the semester making its completion extremely difficult, even impossible”.
He repeated that the faculty is in favour of an open university, stressing that keeping the university closed is beyond any reason and concluded that “we clearly state our position that our university should reopen immediately and fully.”
