Condemnation of the invasion
“It is with sorrow that we are following what is happening in Ukraine. We support the Swedish Government’s condemnation of the invasion. We are now looking at how we can help the students and staff who may have been negatively affected,” says Vice-Chancellor Maria Knutson Wedel.
Read the Vice-Chancellor's blog post where she puts the unimaginable into words and emphazises that our academic values and democratic principles will be more important than ever.
SLU endorses the following statements:
Collaborations with Russia and Belarus to be paused
On 2 March, the Government urgently requested all Swedish universities and higher education institutions to pause contacts and research collaborations with state institutions in Russia and Belarus.
Management is now looking at how SLU will be able to put the Government's request into action. Information about collaborations, contributed by managers, is collected and compiled. Many specific questions arise in individual cases. In close cooperation with other Swedish Higher Education Institutions, guidelines are developed to support all those affected in our operations, who need to make their own decisions about their collaborations.
Concerning students from Ukraine and Russia
There are currently no exchange students from Ukraine or Russia at SLU, as previous partnership agreements have expired.
We are awaiting instructions from the Swedish Migration Agency and the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions about how the EU’s Temporary Protection Directive will affect tuition fees and residence permits for our Ukrainian students.
Are you anxious?
Support is available from SLU if you are anxious or struggling with your mental health. We are an international university and many people are affected by the current situation in different ways.
Staff can contact their line manager or occupational health services.
