Dear Colleagues and Students,

I would like to wish that we all may spend the coming holidays in peace, comfort, and joy with those whom we love best. Let us not forget that Christmastime is the best opportunity for us to slow the tempo of our everyday lives, make time for family and friends, and rejoice in our shared moments. The most precious gift we can give is that of being attentive to others, listening to them, and sharing with them what is most lovely, something which is an integral part of the holiday season. And let us also think of those who do not have the luck nor opportunity to be with their loved ones, spending happy moments with them.

As the year comes to a close, allow me to at the same time wish you the best of health and success in the year ahead. I would also like to thank you for everything that you do for our university. It is your work, invention, and passion which makes our alma mater what it is. Together, we have lived through the year of celebrations of the 450th anniversary of higher education in Olomouc, which symbolically culminates two days before Christmas. Let us be proud of our university, and commemorate its rich history, help create its present, and wish that it have an even brighter future.

I thank you and look forward to meeting with you in 2024.

Martin Procházka, UP Rector
