“OSUN will seek to promote rigorous education and reach institutions in need of international partners, as well as neglected populations, such as refugees, incarcerated people, the Roma and other displaced groups,” the announcement adds.

The “core” of the network will include another university founded by Soros, Central European University, as well as Bard College. These two institutions will develop partnerships with Arizona State University, American University of Central Asia, and BRAC University, located in Bangladesh.

Bard College President Leon Botstein will serve as chancellor of the Open Society University Network.

Soros said of the new undertaking that it will be the “most important and enduring project of my life.”
