Introductory word

Dear colleagues, dear students,

the end of the  year is upon us again which make many of us balance and review past 12 months. I am very glad that our Faculty has had a successful year. The interest of the applicants has remained stable despite the decrease in secondary school graduates. We have reduced the number of students who did not really want to study, our undergraduate students have achieved success both in national and international competitions and conferences. While there is still room for improvement, a lot of our students show interest in their Faculty as demonstrated by their participation in the Cherish Our Faculty competition. The Faculty has also done well financially, especially thanks to the activities in the field of science and research, and again we have been very successful with applications for grant support. In the following years, grant projects to support teaching and learning environment by a total value of over CZK 400 million will continue

Advent time brings also the best opportunity to think of our fellowmen. Therefore, I am happy that we have had a chance to meet seniors of our Faculty again and thank them for their patronage and loyalty. The Faculty has also organized a Christmas collection for children from Klokánek institutes in Olomouc and Dlouhá Loučka, and I am very pleased to note, that you have been very generous again. Children will find puzzles, building blocks, wooden and soft toys, books and free tickets to the Stronghold of Knowledge as well as practical things, such as durable food, clothing with their favorite characters, warm winter boots, slippers, hygiene and school supplies. A special thanks goes to the main organizer Mrs. Martina Oulehlová as well as to all who have contributed.

Enjoy Christmas in the way you desire. I wish you good health, happiness and success in the year 2018.

Ivo Frébort, the Dean
