The Task Force of the Faculty of Science, Charles University adopted the following resolution in a correspondence meeting on 8 March 2022:
In response to the development of the situation related to the war conflict in Ukraine, the Crisis Staff of the Faculty of Science of Charles University adopted the following resolution per rollam:
We do not accept collective guilt - The principles of collective guilt must not be applied on free academic ground. No student, employee, or applicant for admission shall be discriminated against on the basis of race, sex, religion, creed, or nationality. We must not allow attacks on anyone on campus because of frustration with the actions of national governments. The CS asks all students and faculty to be mutually considerate, patient, and understanding.
Stay tuned for updates and guidelines - the Faculty and University are taking steps to help students and staff who are directly affected by the war in Ukraine. Information and guidelines are posted on the University's website and on this page.
We ask all students who may find themselves in a difficult situation:
Be available, the faculty needs your current contact details - the KS urges all students to update their personal details in the SIS, in particular: email address (@natur.cuni.cz), phone number, postal address for delivery in the Czech Republic and bank account number in a Czech bank.
Let us know about you - the Faculty has still not been able to contact by email or phone some students from Ukraine who may be in life-threatening situations. We would be grateful if you could send a message by any available means (e.g. email@example.com ) to let us know if you are OK, if you are staying in the Czech Republic or if you are in Ukraine. All students can already use the information published on https://ukrajine.cuni.cz/, or contact the Faculty's Study Department - firstname.lastname@example.org). If you need anything, please do not hesitate to write. Student advisors are also available to advise you - email@example.com.
Psychological help - If needed, we recommend contacting the faculty psychologist
Scholarship in case of acute hardship- Students can apply for financial support in the form of a bursary. The scholarship is not awarded across the board. The application always goes through an individual assessment. The CS recommends that the application for a scholarship be consulted in advance with the Faculty's Student Affairs Office (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Have current events disrupted your studies? - Classes continue to be taught full-time and according to the timetable.
The Task Fource encourages students who find themselves in a difficult life situation that interferes with their studies (fulfilling their study obligations) to inform the lecturer and the study officer.
The Task Fource recommends that teachers, where possible, adopt an individual approach to students who find themselves in a difficult living situation.
The Task Foufce asks the teachers to be accommodating to students who cannot attend full-time classes due to the war in Ukraine or volunteer activities in the Czech Republic. Teachers will not punish "responsible" students and their absence from class, only in ad hoc situations allow students who properly excuse themselves to fulfill their study obligations.
The situation of students who get into trouble will be considered on an individual basis. Students may apply for an individual study plan or interruption of their studies. Early resolution of academic problems with the Office of Academic Affairs may facilitate students' progression to the next stage of their studies.
Restrictions on international cooperation - In accordance with the suspension of agreements between Charles University and Russian partner universities, the Faculty suspends all inter-faculty agreements with partner faculties of Russian universities and mobility to Russia and Belarus. However, this measure does not apply to students and staff already present.

The Academic Senate of the Faculty of Science of Charles University strongly condemns Russia's aggression against Ukraine and fully supports Ukrainian students at the Faculty of Science of Charles University and the entire academic community.
RNDr. Radim Perlín, Ph.D., Chairman of the Academic Senate of the Faculty of Science of Charles University

Prof. RNDr. Martin Kotora, Ph.D., Vice-Chairman of the Academic Senate of the Faculty of Arts, Charles University
Prague, 24 February 2022
The management of the Faculty of Science of Charles University and the Board of the Academic Senate of the Faculty unequivocally stand behind the announcement of the Rector of Charles University of 24 February 2022, the text of which they fully identify with.
Statement of the Rector of Charles University: the Management of Charles University strongly condemns any form of aggression
As Rector, I, together with the management of Charles University, strongly condemn any form of aggression, especially such as that being undertaken right now by Putin's Russia. This is an extremely dangerous move that threatens the lives of the people of Europe - including many of my colleagues and students. It is a step that is taking the world backwards!
Once again, it shows how important it is to study, to think critically, to understand history and the complex world today. I call on academics, not only of our university but others, to strongly support a free and democratic society, and to say a clear no to war aggression.
Prof. Milena Králíčková, Rector of Charles University
