With more than half of its current 3000 students and professors coming from abroad and most Master's programmes taught in English, USI has grown into a multilingual academic institution with great international breadth. USI's small size, its high teacher-to-student ratio, the integration of different disciplines, and top-quality technical and IT infrastructure make up the ideal conditions for study and research in a cosmopolitan and multicultural environment. The Università Della Svizzera Italiana was founded in 1996 and is sprucing up for a new challenge, a crucial phase for its future. Young USI is receptive to all sorts of opportunities to explore and pioneer. It is willing to take on enriching new initiatives; free to put forward strategies to meet the challenges confronting modern people: the environment, the economy, society, and the new technologies. USI stands out in the Swiss academic landscape for its original teaching programs, both a Bachelor's and Master's level. These are informed by regional and historical-cultural motives, but equally by an inspired readiness to act on the reforms currently implemented in higher education. Look at the Academy of Architecture and the Faculty of Economics: their creation was fully justified, the former by a glowing centuries-old tradition and the latter by the strength of Lugano's financial centre, with its resonance nationwide and worldwide. Then look at the Faculty of Communication Sciences, unique of its kind in Switzerland, and the Faculty of Informatics, well on its way to becoming the third centre of excellence in Switzerland after the two Federal Institutes of Technology. Combined with its privileged geographic position - USI acting as a bridge between the South (Lombardy) and the North (the rest of Switzerland across the Alps) - these choices give our university an identity of its own. USI is characterized by steadily rising student numbers, growing success in research and the international mix of its actors (the highest proportion in Switzerland), whether students, research and doctoral assistants, or professors.
