2021 Virtual Graduation Ceremony School of Law


Welcome

from the President of the Council

On behalf of the University Council, management, faculty and staff, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our graduating class and their relatives and friends who have joined us for this significant occasion. This evening marks a conclusion as well as a new beginning; it is the rewarding conclusion of your university life and the start of that longer journey, the pursuit of your dreams. The significance of your accomplishments and your graduation is even more apparent, as you were able to successfully respond to challenges related to a global health crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic. You have shown that extraordinary times, may require extraordinary efforts, but more importantly, they define you as extraordinary graduates. You have now joined a distinguished and growing community of alumni of European University Cyprus. This should fill you with pride –but also a sense of responsibility– as you represent the university as one of our most important ambassadors. Along with your well-deserved degree tonight, every single one of you becomes the embodiment of what this university stands for: Excellence, Innovation and Social Responsibility. Our significant investments in new technologies and state-of-the-art facilities in recent years; the launch of new programs; the ground-breaking of our new building that will house additional technologically advanced infrastructure for Medicine and Dentistry; our close cooperation with the business community, as well as our academic and research achievements have made our university a regional hub of excellence. You should be proud that your university, your Alma Mater, belongs to Europe’s largest higher education group - Galileo Global Education - with a network of 45 institutions, in over 80 campuses across 10 countries and with over 120,000 students enrolled. We feel very honored and proud to belong to such a great family. Notably, our university was named among the world’s top 201+ universities in the 2021 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings with regard to three key sectors: Innovation, Industry and Infrastructure; Actions on Climate Change and Decent Work & Economic Growth. This is another great achievement of EUC that shows its commitment for innovation and long-term sustainability.

European University Cyprus is also committed to internationalization and a global outlook for its people and for this reason, it has achieved full membership in the Utrecht Network—a European network of more than 30 prestigious universities in 26 countries. EUC community members benefit from this network of universities throughout Europe in terms of academic mobility, cultural exchanges and research opportunities. You know very well that your own individual success, just as the success of our university requires commitment, hard work and a great deal of support from those around you. On this occasion, as you look around you and acknowledge those who have supported you on this journey, allow me to do the same. Clearly, none of this would have been possible without the commitment and the collective work of the EUC community. Our first-class faculty, our researchers and our dedicated management and administrative staff remain our most valuable asset. I would like to thank everyone for their work and extend my gratitude also to you, our latest graduates, for placing our university on the path of excellence. I would also like to congratulate your parents and loved ones for their unfailing support during your academic journey. Education is a continuous journey. This applies to EUC as an institution as it does to all of us as individuals. One never stops learning. What you are celebrating this evening is a significant milestone but I urge you to retain your thirst for knowledge the way you pursued and experienced it here. Dear Graduates, Your time to make a difference has arrived; the time is now. Seize every opportunity to grow further, to excel, to have an impact in the world. Your Alma Mater will always take pride in calling you, European University Cyprus Graduates. Warm Congratulations!

Dr Christoforos Hadjikyprianou CEO & President of the Council
