Rector's Welcome Message
I welcome you all to the 2018-2019 Academic Year Fall Semester. While our previously registered students have returned back to their familiar environment, newly registered students have just joined the grand EMU family. At the beginning of the new academic year, I extend my warmest wishes to all of you, old and new, and hope that the academic year will bring you health, success and happiness.
Education is a very important undertaking which necessitates effort, patience, committment and focus. Your success in your studies is the primary goal of each of us. The education offered in this University is the starting point of your professional development. Please keep in mind that studying at Eastern Mediterranean University will enable you to integrate global qualities with local characteristics by supporting the development of cultural, social and conceptual values as well as your emotional intelligence. The quality of “global citizenship” you will be adopting within the boundaries of Eastern Mediterranean University will support you in the path to success in your future careers by equipping you with the skills of leadership, mobility, harmony and cooperation. The fundamental values which will be assisting you throughout the entire process should be morality, knowledge, reality and development.
From time to time, living away from your families may bring you mixed feelings such as sorrow. The best way to overcome this is to get to know the environment you live in. Please remember that Famagusta is a historical city which hosted numerous important cultures throughout the history. A walk in the city or taking up the activities at on-campus sports facilities may bring you comfort. In the meantime, you are always welcome to share your problems with the EMU administration. I assure you that each and every staff member will be supporting you with an ‘open door’ policy. Our fundamental aim is to ensure a happy, peaceful and high-quality academic semester for you.
Once again, I welcome you all and wish you all the success in your academic endeavors during the new academic year.
Prof. Dr. Necdet OSAM
