In the past, CEENQA had two member agencies from Russia, the National Center for Public Accreditation (NCPA) and the Center for Professional Public Accreditation of Study Programs and Career Development – Agency of Employers and Students in the sphere of Agriculture (ARSA). However, both were excluded from the organisation in September 2022, ARSA due to non-compliance with its financial obligations and NCPA as a clear sign that CEENQA opposes the Russian invasion of Ukraine and considers it a violation of the fundamental values of the European Higher Education Area.
