Which is the call of an intellectual. You have decided to dedicate yourself to social and humanistic disciplines, sciences that have their basis in man and in society, not in technology. This fact has a special weight and imposes a great responsibility upon you, the responsibility of true intellectuals. Namely, the sciences we deal with and the values we promote based on these sciences do not have material and financial correlations. Their purpose is in themselves. In other words, based on the knowledge we acquire and the ideas we create and are people, human beings, members of a society with its own history, heritage and specific values, people with their own identity. We are obliged to pass that on to future generations. ”The entire address of Dean Ćosić is available .

• I shall work for the benefit of humanity, my Croatian nation and my homeland of the Republic of Croatia,

• I will further develop and transfer my knowledge, acquired during my studies, to young people,
• I will be a conscientious educator, guardian of our cultural values and a fighter for scientific truth.
