Organization and purpose

The Comenius Academic Club (CAC) is a part of the Czech and Slovak Solidarity Council (CCSC), an independent (non-profit) cultural organization based in New York City, NY. 

Bringing together outstanding, internationally renowned intellectuals and artists, the CAC seeks to engage in advocacy in a variety of areas of general interest such as the organization and funding of science, healthcare, economy, education, humanities and culture.

The Club also seeks to connect researchers and decision makers as well as to communication with the general public. The consideration of issues and challenges will be independent of any interest group. At times outside experts will be invited into the debate.
