On June 24, 2019, the Cleveland State University and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary (through the Balassi Institute) established a Hungarian visiting lecturer position at the university. The position is for 4 years, beginning from the fall 2020 semester. The lecturer will teach Hungarian and will educate CSU students about the Hungarian culture. It is a further requirement that the lecturer engage with the broader Hungarian community in Cleveland.

The preparatory work has been supported by Dr. Endre Szentkiralyi, the president of the United Hungarian Societies, by Dr. Gregory M. Sadlek, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and Dr. Zita Bencsik, the Consul General of Hungary from Chicago who helped the negotiations regarding this bi-lateral agreement.

The present Fulbright scholar program between CSU and Hungary will be transferred from the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences to the Washkewicz College of Engineering.

The interview with Dr. Zita Bencsik about this news (in Hungarian) will be aired first at Bocskai Radio, the voice of Hungary at WJCU 88.7 FM on Sunday June 30th at 3 p.m. and on bocskairadio.org
