The University of Navarra celebrated the awarding of Silver Medals to professionals who have been working for 25 years. This year, the distinction has been awarded to 78 people: 7 belonging to IESE, which were awarded on 20 December at a ceremony in Barcelona, and 71 to the Pamplona and San Sebastian campuses, one of them posthumously to the professor of the Faculty of Theology Juan Antonio Gil Tamayo, who will be awarded on 9 March at an academic ceremony in memoriam.

The ceremony, which took place in the Museum Theatre of the academic centre, was attended by the rector, Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero, and Javier Mata, director of the Research Management Service, representing the group of medallists.

In his speech, the rector pointed out that the university faces challenges together: "We know that, although alone we could go faster, together we can go further," he said. And he added: "We have in mind the big rather than the small. We are able to overcome the incomprehensions or discomfort of day-to-day work, to take into account the great project of building the university.

He also quoted Francisco Ponz, former rector, who celebrated his 100th birthday in 2019: "The entire life of the University reflects the intimate joy of those who only seek to serve others, who aspire to be able to improve this service, who do not seek personal brilliance...".

Javier Mata also highlighted unity and service as the main characteristics of the work at the University. "We are up here today because we have been providing service for 25 years. Service to the University, but service to society through the University," he said.

"These are 25 years of memories. 25 years of research, of healing, of learning to heal and to teach, of joys, of some sadness, of dedication, of willing sacrifice, of adapting to organisational, personal and technological changes in the environment. Sometimes accepting without understanding, sometimes understanding and accepting reluctantly," he said on behalf of the medallists.
