XXIV Dies academicus
Saturday, May 9, 2020
Online at 10am

The Dies academicus is the annual celebration of the University, a significant moment to share and learn about USI and its developments. The Dies includes an official address by the Rector and speeches by guest speakers, both from within and beyond USI. It is also an opportunity to welcome at USI the Rectors from other universities, to award the Honorary Doctorate, to appoint Honorary Members of the University, and to assign the Credit Suisse Award for Best Teaching, which rewards the best teacher of one of the USI Faculties (in turns).

The current situation and restrictive measures to protect the population do not allow the Dies to take place in Aula magna. USI has decided to transform this usual and precious moment of celebration, meeting and sharing into a video entitled "USI is energy", online on Saturday 9 May at 10.00: https://www.youtube.com/usiuniversity.
