USP's 50th Anniversary Years

 Menu » About Us » Pro-Chancellor's Message


Dear all

The University of the South Pacific (USP) is fast approaching its 50th anniversary. In 2018, the University will celebrate 50 years of providing quality tertiary qualification to the Pacific region and beyond.

The 50th Anniversary Steering Committee, chaired by me, has put together a comprehensive calendar of events which aims to encompass and celebrate the diverse nature of USP.

The 50th anniversary provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our achievements thus far while at the same time, look towards cementing our vision for the future. It's a time for reflection but also a time to adjust our sails and boldly navigate the waters ahead.

I invite you to explore this website and be a part of this historic milestone for the region. Please visit our Timeline which will take you on a journey from when USP was just an idea to our recent accomplishments, or browse through our Gallery to take a jog down our memory lane. Visit out Get Involved and Events pages to see how you can get involved or simply send us your ideas through the Contact page.

Our strategic goal is to be a leader in tertiary education and research and assist towards the sustainable development of our region. USP's 50th anniversary represents a vital tactical opportunity. As the University completes its transformative Strategic Plan 2013-2018, it provides an opportunity for everyone to reflect not only on the achievements but also to become enthused about the University's next 50 to 100 years.

Please join us in celebrating the region's premier tertiary education provider

Yours Sincerely
Winston Thompson
Pro-Chancellor and Chair of Council
