The President of the Student Parliament and Association, Agron Demiri, said that this meeting has its own jubilee symbolism for students directly from the Rector to hear about the journey of the University for these 20 years and future plans.
The Rector of the South East European University, Academician Bexheti, expressed his excitement over the enthusiasm of the students and their presence in such a large number at this meeting.
“It was a group of international and local visionaries, and I was among them, since November 2001, a month, which coincides with the main national holidays, we started the path of building this institution, which is now considered by all as the largest producer of intellectual values", said Rector Bexheti.
He presented the main stages that the University has gone through, emphasizing the great impact it has had these 20 years, especially in the reform of Albanian society here in Northern Macedonia.
“South East European University has created an intellectual emancipation, taking us out of professional, academic, scientific but also social inferiority. The Albanian professional and intellectual elite already bears the stamp of this University. If you look at the structure of employees in the country, but also in Kosovo, you will see that a large part in the elite sectors, such as finance, or services, business as well, their Alma Mater is SEEU”, noted among others Rector Bexheti.
Regarding the future, Rector Bexheti, announced the initiative to create the Faculty of Health Sciences, if everything goes according to plan it is expected to be implemented in the new academic year.
