It was people's competences that were more important than their origin, ethnic, religious, racial, gender and social background. He also added that intellectuals, aware of the possibility of manipulating ideas and different ideologies, cannot remain indifferent to social change if they want to be the consciousness and conscience of every society and time. At the end of his address, Rector Škrijelj congratulated all the candidates on the successes achieved so far, which he also called the success of the University of Sarajevo. He added that intellectuals, aware of the possibility of manipulating ideas and different ideologies, cannot remain indifferent to social change if they want to be the consciousness and conscience of every society and time.
