For many centuries, the university as an institution has engendered and interpreted social ethos. At the same time it promotes culture and advocates creation and confrontation of new directions in art and literature in conjunction with the ongoing cultural currents. The ethos of the university is defined by its search for truth and its service; that is a service to society, promotion of culture and the establishment of national elites. The connection between ethos and the intellectual cultural creative potential calls for the academics to continue leadership in promotion of culture in that ethos. Czech higher education faces many unknowns largely dictated by the country's economic situation and consequently the changes in the finances of higher education. (original abstract)
