 Rector's Farewell Message to Graduates


Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam
Rector

Distinguished Graduates,

I wholeheartedly congratulate you on your graduation. Seizing this opportunity, I would like to share with you that I also feel your excitement. It is this excitement that motivates us to act more dynamically, to better plan for the future, to contribute to the solution of the problems of the world and to reach the highest level of scientific development.

As you know, the university from which you  are about to graduate is not an ordinary institution of higher education. Boasting its place among the best universities worldwide, your institution is a WORLD UNIVERSITY. Your university shares the 6th place with METU and Istanbul Technical University among the 23 Turkish universities appearing in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.   

Your institution also ranks within the 101-151 band of the Times Higher Educations's World's Best Universities that are aged fifty years or under. These rankings are the most important indicator, at the same time proof, of our graduates acquiring their profession within a system equivalent to those offered in the best universities in the context of education, research, scientific infrastructure and social responsibilities.

Dear graduates, while you are graduating from the Eastern Mediterranean University, a universal, multicultural and multilingual institution which respects different beliefs, you are  also consolidating 'Virtus, Scientia, Promotionem' concepts with the principles of tolerance and sharing. You have been brought up as the bests in your profession and as the most virtuous within the context of the humanistic values. You have learnt to respect the right to life for all the living. You have also learnt to help those in need, stay away from conflict, and the beauty of communication and agreement. In this respect, I extend my congratulations to you once again.

Dear EMU Graduates,

Time has gone by so quickly; Cyprus has become your second homeland and within this community, you have always had the support of your friends and the members of the Eastern Mediterranean University. During your stay in our country,  you got to know Cyprus and the Turkish Cypriots. Now, undoubtedly, a part of your heart will beat for Cyprus. You will always follow what's happening here in Cyprus and look into the facts in your propective positions. Whilst stating I have no doubt that you will always exalt Cyprus and EMU, I am proud to send you off to your countries safe and sound, and deliver you to your families as mature individuals with a profession.

May you all have a bright future. God bless you.

Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam
Rector
