Season's greetings from Università della Svizzera italiana

14 December 2020

This year's greeting card announces the 25th birthday of Università della Svizzera italiana, which will be celebrated in 2021. For another 25 years, USI will stay in the international rankings dedicated to young universities. Although we are aware of our young age, the University invites the entire academic community and the region to celebrate this milestone with a programme of events that will soon be announced (

In his video-message, available at the bottom of the page, USI Rector Boas Erez thanks all members of the academic community for what has been achieved, especially during this complicated 2020 that is about to end. The video seemed like the best way to share our greetings since the current health emergency will not allow us to meet in person on campus. The Rector underlines, in particular, the importance of the work carried out by the academic community in the last 12 months, which has made it possible to keep the commitment towards USI students despite the difficulties and without missing a single day of classes. 

"In the past year we have shown that USI is a solid, cohesive institution that works" - says the Rector in the video - "and in 2021 we will find a way to celebrate our 25th anniversary together. Many initiatives are in-store and the programme will reflect the wealth of everything we can do together".

Università della Svizzera italiana wishes you happy holidays!
