"The escalating situation in Iran and the recognizable repression carried out by the state against students and scientists at numerous Iranian universities is shocking and worrying", said the Rector of Magdeburg University, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jens Strackeljan on the occasion of the current events. "It is hard for us to bear that violence is directed against members of Iranian universities of all places, places that, like Magdeburg University, stand in a special way for diversity, freedom of expression and open discourse. The OVGU feels a special bond with its 125 Iranian students during these days and declares its solidarity with the statement of the Senate of the German Rectors' Conference HRK on the current events.
