Scholars at Risk SAR

Scholars at Risk at UniBE

A working group of professors is dedicated to the interests of SAR at the University of Bern.

A working group of professors headed by the Vice-Rector for Quality, Prof. Dr. Heike Mayer, maintains cooperation between SAR coordination at the Rectorate and the Faculties. The group supports and advises in matters related to SAR, for example finding new scholars and advocacy work.


Distinguished Service Award

Recently, in recognition of the University of Bern’s dedication and commitment to protecting scholars and the freedom to think, question and share ideas, Scholars at Risk bestowed a Distinguished Service Award upon the University of Bern. The close cooperation continues in 2021 and we are looking forward to developing new projects in support of academic freedom.
