University of Nicosia stands by its Lebanese students

The University of Nicosia community sympathises with the Lebanese people during this challenging time, following last week’s tragic explosion and its unfolding repercussions to their lives and livelihoods.

Our collective thoughts and wishes go out especially to our affected students and alumni, as well as to their families, whom we are in continuous communication with across many channels, in our effort to provide the best possible support at this time.

We are thankful our Lebanese students were out of harm’s way during the blast. Nevertheless, this is understandably a trying time for everyone involved, one that will require ongoing support in the weeks and months ahead.

In that vein, the University is actively supporting various local initiatives, including the huge pancyprian effort by ARAMEX Cyprus, championed by Leyana Daccache, a Lebanese UNIC alumna, which has managed to assemble close to 10 tons of foodstuffs, clothing and medical supplies for immediate emergency aid.

If you would like to support the relief effort in any way, please contact student.affairs@unic.ac.cy.

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
