IUS General Coordinator
We have searched a logo that has relation with the Salesian identity, reflects the university nature of the IUS and highlights the global character of the organization.
We have received 31 proposals from: UNISAL (Brazil), UPS (Ecuador), Mexico (UNISAL), Argentina (ISES Rio Gallegos), Salesian University (Bolivia), EUSS (Sarriá-Barcelona), IUSVE (Verona) , IUSTO (Turin). We have had the participation of teachers and students from our IUS.
We thank you for your work, creativity and collaboration. Almost all the proposes came from IUS students and they show an excellent and professional quality.
After the technical analysis made by “Audiovisuales Don Bosco” in Quito and the study made by all the jury that was formed by: Fr. Miguel Angel García (responsible for the school sector), Fr. Juan Pablo Abreu (Department of Social Communications) and Fr. Patrick Anthonyraj (Youth Ministry Department), and after the consult made to all the members of the IUS Direction Council, we have chosen the logo proposal presented by Stefano Lucchetti, student of the Salesian University Institute - Venice (IUSVE) – located in Verona.
The new logo wants to express the synergy of the institutions united by the same passion for the education of young people according to the style of Don Bosco. The design expresses unity, relationship, future, accompaniment as values in the world of Salesian higher education.
Immediately, the user’s manual will be designed and sent to all IUS, also it will be sent to the communication offices at the Provinces and other organisms of the Congregation so the logo will be well known and used as an element of common identity
