The Inauguration of the Academic Year of 2018/2019

On the 5th of October 2018 the Inauguration of the Academic Year 2018/2019 took place at our University. It was an exceptional event because for the first time since the establishment of the Tischner European University we were able to host the participants in the new building near Jana Pawła II 39a Avenue.

The ceremony began traditionally with the Gaude Mater Polonia anthem. Then guests and the entire academic community of the Tischner European University were welcomed. Shortly after this Rector of the TEU, prof. Anna Siewierska-Chmaj gave her welcoming speech.

The next speaker was the president of the Students' Self-Government of the Tischner European University - Mrs. Karolina Iwaniec. After her speech, the diploma contest winners were awarded and on behalf of all newly admitted students took the oath. The text of the oath was read by the Dean of the Tischner European University - Roksana Ulatowska, PhD.

After hearing the Gaudeamus Igitur Rector solemnly opened the Academic Year 2018/2019.

As the last one performed Mr. Szymon Hołownia – our special guest, who conducted a very inspiring inaugural lecture. The journalist's speech was rewarded with thunderous applause from all gathered guests and students.

Once again, we would like to thank all our guests and students for such a large number of arrivals at this important event and we wish you a great New Academic Year!
