The Rector is the head of Charles University and acts as one of its academic bodies.
The Rector acts and decides in all matters relating to the University, with the exception of those the Act on Higher Education Institutions assigns as within the competence of other bodies of the University or its Faculties. The Rector represents the University externally and also acts as its representative within the Czech Rectors Conference.
The Rector is appointed and dismissed by the President of the Czech Republic based on a proposal of the Academic Senate; the Rector’s term of office is four years.
The development and support of well functioning, efficient communication at Charles University is my priority. If you wish to share your opinions, communicate ideas or have a question to ask about the functioning of the university, I will be very happy to reply to your e-mails.
