1 March 2022. The war in Ukraine stands in stark contrast to the principles of peace, freedom, tolerance and coop-eration across borders, for which HSG stands.
Therefore, the University of St.Gallen supports the solidarity statements of swissuniversities and the European University Association (EUA), the appeals of other partner institutions and networks, as well as the social media initiative #UnisStandWithUkraine.
HSG not only strongly affirms its solidarity with members of the higher education community and the broader population in Ukraine, but also acknowledges the difficult situation faced by its partner universities and other higher education institutions in Russia, as well as with exchange students. The University leadership reaffirms its determination to support those affected.
In addition, HSG wants to give all HSG community members the opportunity to share their messages and thoughts regarding this crisis at the "Personality Development Grid" at SQUARE and encourages all community members from all nations to participate in this exchange.
Furthermore, the University of St.Gallen and the student body (SHSG) appreciate and support the engagement of its students who want to get involved and contribute with special activities.
