Between November 19 and December 4, Ambassador Andrew Schapiro visited six Czech universities and spoke to more than one thousand students and teachers across the Czech Republic. The visits included the Czech Technical University, the Technical University in Liberec, students of the Department of International Relations of the University of Economics in Prague, Universities in Pardubice and Hradec Králové, and Film Academy Prague (FAMU).

Ambassador Schapiro had the opportunity to visit new facilities including libraries, modern laboratories and auditoriums and discussed the universities’ achievements and priorities for the future. The lively discussions with student audiences focused on U.S.-Czech relations, current U.S. Foreign policy priorities, as well as current global issues. Ambassador Schapiro looks forward to continuing his university visits as soon as students return for the Spring semester.
