Chancellor and President Message about Vienna

November 02, 2020

It is with shock and sadness that we have learned that a terrorist attack was reported in Vienna, Austria, within walking distance from our campus. Webster University has been in contact with employees at the Vienna location. We have not received any reports of any Webster students, faculty or staff being injured or being directly in the line of danger from this incident. As a precaution, the Webster Vienna location will be closed Tuesday and all University operations there, including classes, will be held remotely. Our thoughts are with our Webster community as well as our family and friends in the region. We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves.

Alumna reflects on support, opportunities at Webster Vienna

October 16, 2020

"Life is a struggle" might sound trite, but for 25-year-old Maleen Fischer, the struggle was life itself. When she was four years old, Fischer was diagnosed with a rare, incurable and often fatal lung disease called Pulmonary Hypertension. Today, she can boast that she is successfully fighting the disease, and also succeeded at Webster Vienna, where she graduated with bachelor’s degrees in Media Communications, Business Management and Economics before pursuing a master’s degree at Harvard University. "Webster made it possible for me to study safely and become an intricate part of the community," she said.
