Appreciation of those who have worked 15 year with CIU
Academic and administrative staff members of the Cyprus International University got together at the Palm Inn Restaurant on CIU campus with the occasion of a New Year cocktail.
Personnel who have been working with CIU for 15 years or more received certificates of appreciation and carnations at the event, which was attended by Acting Rector Prof. Hikmet Seçim, the Secretary General Associate Prof. Dr. Ahmet Adalıer and the Coordinator for the Rector’s Office Associate Prof. Dr. Serkan Abbasoglu as well as many academics and administrative staff members.
Speaking at the cocktail, Prof. Seçim said “Institutions become everlasting through individuals. Individually and collectively they give life to an institution, they become the veins and the blood within that make it work. It is thus very critical to have tenure by individuals working for an institution, not only for the credibility and security of the institution but also for accumulation of institutional know-how and experience”. Prof. Seçim pointed out that long-term results had been obtained from the undertakings during the past year, adding, “I express my gratitude to our deans, school directors, their assistants, all our lecturers, instructors and personnel for having contributed to our success. I wish all of you a happy new year”.
