Swear on our own!

For more than a quarter century, after the establishing of FSV UK, graduate students could not swear on the faculty´s own mace and the insignia had to be borrowed by the Faculty of Arts. Let’s make the dream of our own insignia a reality!

How it all started? 

Every year thousands of students of FSV UK take both graduation and matriculation oaths. Do they know whose mace they swear on? Although we had been swearing and vowing on borrowed mace before, there is no need for our successors to continue after 25 years of existence of the faculty. And so this is how it all started...For the project announcement collection, we gained support from current as well as former deans of FSV UK - incumbent Dean Jakub Koncelik and former Deans Prof. Lubomir Mlcoch and Prof. Jan Amos Visek. We approched Mr. Otmar Oliva - the academic sculptor who was alredy contacted by the former Dean, Prof. Miloslav Petrusek, twenty years ago.

This funding is one of the last steps to fulfill a twenty year old dream!    

                          

What is our primary aim?

As alumni and supporters of the Faculty of Social Sciences, we want to strengthen the identity of our faculty; we want to give our faculty its  insignia. We don´t want to wait another quarter of a century.
