Rector's Speech at the Graduation Ceremony 2019

Your Excellencies, Dear Mayors, Dear Presidents of the SEDEF Foundation and the Board of Trustees, Dear Rectors, Dear Guests, Dear Academicians, Dear Parents and Dear Graduates!

It is truly a pleasure to welcome you all at the ceremony where IUS bids farewellto the 11th generation of graduates, the Class of 2019.

Each year, the graduation ceremony is truly a remarkable occasion to celebrate the achievements of youth and education.

Your presence here today is important whether you are a graduating or post graduate student, parent, friend, faculty, alumni or IUS staff member.

Today, 276 young people will cross this stage receiving Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees.

Congratulations to all.

I would also like to congratulate and thank our faculty and all other staff for their contribution in different capacities to form and help achieve the goals of these young people. Each one of you contributed immensely to what they have become today.

I’d also like to thank the parents for their trust in choosing IUS as an educational institution for their children, and for the support you have given to our graduates. Young people are the foundation on which the societies rely and depend on. You have done your best in their upbringing and we request you to continue to support them in the future as well.

May God reward you all for your efforts!

To our esteemed graduates, I’d like to say that today you have accomplished one stage of your life. However, the end of one stage is the beginning of the new one.

You have met the high challenges of higher education and it is our hope that the knowledge and formation you have received at IUS will help you to be the next generation of leaders in whatever fields you pursue.

I wish you all bright and promising futures. May your goals be successful and rewarded!

Last but not the least, I would also like to thank everyone who in one way or another contributed to the success of this day: the SEDEF foundation, IUS faculty and administrative staff, catering team, decoration team and other departments and committees who have overseen the coordination of various activities.

Thank you all! Hvala puno! Allahaemanet!
