Welcome Message from Schiller’s President and CEO

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I am delighted to welcome you all to the start of the 2023-2024 academic year. For our new students in Madrid, Paris, Heidelberg, Tampa and our Distance Learning community, I am especially excited to have you join the Schiller family. I know that you are all eager to start this journey of learning and discovery, and I am confident that you will find a supportive and stimulating environment here at Schiller International University.

Our university is committed to providing you with the highest quality education possible. We have an extraordinary faculty body, advanced facilities, and a range of academic programs and extracurricular activities to choose from, all working with an Academic Model designed to make your learning experience relevant and exciting. I encourage you to take advantage of all that our university has to offer.

At Schiller, our mission serves as a guiding light – a beacon that illuminates our path and gives purpose to everything we do. The educational mission of Schiller International University is to prepare students, personally and professionally, for future leadership roles in an international setting. This mission is not merely a statement; it is a commitment that we uphold with passion and dedication.

In a world that is both interconnected and interdependent, it is our responsibility to recognize and engage with the pressing issues that define our era. As we prepare to start this formative journey, let’s remember the challenges and opportunities that shape our world today.

The ongoing political conflicts in the world serve as a stark reminder of the fragility of international relations and the importance of diplomacy and cooperation. As aspiring leaders and thinkers, we must seek to understand the complexities of such situations and work towards a future of peaceful resolutions and mutual understanding.

The waves of instability that ripple across certain parts of the world as I write this letter underscore the need for sustainable development, social justice, and equitable access to education and resources. As members of a global community, we have the power to contribute to initiatives that promote stability, inclusivity, and economic growth across nations.

Amidst these challenges, we must also celebrate moments of human achievement and progress. The recent successful moon landing by India is a testament to the indomitable spirit of exploration and innovation. It reminds us that despite obstacles, humanity has the ability to reach for the stars, pushing the boundaries of our understanding and potential.

Our commitment to a multidisciplinary and well-rounded education equips us to engage with these complex issues. We encourage our students to not only excel in their academic goals but also to be informed and committed global citizens who are conscious of the world around them. By fostering an environment of dialogue, empathy, and critical thinking, we aim to nurture leaders who are equipped to address the challenges and seize the opportunities of our time.

As we step into this new academic year, let’s channel our collective energy into making a positive impact on the world. Let’s harness the power of education to build bridges of understanding, contribute to the resolution of conflicts, and champion the cause of justice and equality. Each one of us has a role to play in shaping the future, and I am confident that the Schiller community will rise to the occasion.

Welcome to the new school year at Schiller International University. Together, let us continue to learn, grow, and contribute to a world that is in need of our collective wisdom and compassion.
