The consideration of the resignation letter of KTU Rector Petras Baršauskas was the main point of issue of the first meeting of the new Council.

“The Rector has submitted his letter of resignation after long contemplation of the issue, and he sees the decision as the most fitting. We honour the choice of Petras Baršauskas and therefore are granting his request. Without doubt, we all acknowledge the impact the Rector has made into initiating progress in the situation of higher education system in Lithuania”, said Dalius Misiūnas.
