Dies academicus 2021
Institutional Communication Service
Palazzo dei congressi, Lugano
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).
