October 26, 2017 12:40 am
In the lead up to its 50th-anniversary celebrations, The University of the South Pacific launched its special logo, theme, and website.
This reflects the developments and achievements of the University since its establishment in 1968.
The launch was held at the University’s 85th Council meeting in Nadi yesterday.
USP Pro-Chancellor. Winston Thompson, says the logo and theme is reflective of the role the University has played in helping shape the future of the Pacific region.
The logo entails a sailing canoe element which is amplified from the existing USP logo.
Thompson says the canoe, also known as vaka, drua, kalia or tongiaki in the Pacific, sailing across the ocean and its sea of islands symbolises the strive for education; the progress of its people through time and space, and the journey of USP as it navigates its way into the future together with its stakeholders.
The theme for the 50th anniversary celebrations which will be held next year is: Celebrating the Pacific, Shaping its Future.
The new logo and theme will be implemented and used across the University effective from November 1st to December 2018.
