"We have faced the pandemic with initiative and a sense of responsibility; we have complained little and we have innovated a lot," said the rector.

The University of Navarra has awarded its Silver Medal to 99 professionals in recognition of their 25 years of work at the academic center. This year, two people from IESE, who received the distinction on Dec. 22 in Barcelona, and 97 from the Pamplona and San Sebastián campuses were awarded the medals.

The award ceremony was held at the Museum Theater, with the intervention of the rector, Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero; and Marta Ferrer, director of the Department of Allergology and Clinical Immunology of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, on behalf of the award winners. The event was in person for the medalists and was broadcast in streaming for family members, colleagues and friends.

In his speech, the Rector, Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero, referred to the pandemic and reflected on the possibility of being happy "in these times of prolonged adversity". The conditions for happiness, he stressed, are to be useful to others and to provide a service to society; and to be surrounded by good people.

In his opinion, these are two conditions that "are admirably fulfilled" at the University of Navarra: "Firstly, in our teaching, healthcare and research activities we try to provide the best possible service to students, patients and society in general; and secondly, if we look around us, we always find extraordinary colleagues who make our task easier and encourage us to advance, grow and progress," he stressed.

Regarding the last year, he affirmed that the University has faced the pandemic with initiative and a sense of responsibility: "We have complained little and innovated a lot; we have overcome unexpected difficulties with creativity and as a team; we have had clear priorities; we have acted with order and a spirit of solidarity; our response has caused many people to trust the University and to value the task we carry out every day with our best efforts".

A memorable promotion

Dr. Marta Ferrer thanked on behalf of the medalists: "We are a memorable graduating class, a challenge to the laws of epidemiology; we have survived kisses and hugs, tobacco smoke in our classrooms and workplaces, bollicaos and tigretones, bombs and poisoning," she said, among other events experienced in the last 25 years. And, as if that were not enough, he continued, "we manage with ease in the midst of a pandemic while maintaining academic excellence and we are able to have floors full of COVID and attend consultations, endoscopies and operating rooms".

Dr. Ferrer spoke of the stages in working life. "We have given way to maturity. Today is a day to forgive, to be grateful, to put our hearts into what we do. Only we can make our workplace look like that place we dreamed of and experienced when we first walked in here," she explained.
