Wirth Alumni Network
The Wirth Alumni Network recognizes the need for the development of
an active and responsive networking organization among its Central
European scholars. The goals and mandate of the network will be to
facilitate research cooperation and exchange among its scholars, and to
establish itself as the Central European hub for academic and scholarly
activities between Canada and Central Europe.
All Wirth Doctoral Research Fellows shall automatically become Alumni
Network members upon completion of their study period at the Wirth
Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies. Associate
membership for non-doctoral student groups, such as post-docs, visiting
researchers and academics, shall be granted by request, with approval of
the Executive Committee (Board). The Executive Committee shall
determine the criteria for extending associate membership to non-core
members, and communicate these criteria to the network members.
Depending on circumstances and need such criteria will be periodically
reviewed and amended as necessary.
Terms of Membership:
Memberships are considered lifetime, except in the Associate
Membership status, where membership may be limited to a specific
time-period due to some particular circumstances, or necessity. Such
decisions will be made at the Executive Committee level, and if
necessary, can be appealed to the membership as a whole during the
biennial meeting of the network.
