It gives me great pleasure to work for our great university, and in my second term I will continue to work to make it even more wonderful for everyone who works or studies here. As far as our external profile is concerned, I will continue my efforts to show the influence we have as a university on the city, the region, the country and far beyond, and to increase it where possible.’
