Rīga Stradiņš University – 70th Anniversary
We are more than a university – Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) is an open and international platform for education, research and innovation, where today’s knowledge meets tomorrow's challenges.
The year 2020 marks our 70th anniversary. Over these seven decades we have evolved from being a local medical institute to a modern European university in the fields of healthcare and social sciences. In these years more than 35,000 graduates have received powerful seed capital from the university – research-based competitive knowledge and skills developed using world-class technologies. Thousands of lecturers, researchers and administrative employees have been a part of the university community during this time, helping it to grow and become a flagship in the field.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will celebrate the 70th anniversary of RSU in 2021!

The logo of the 70th anniversary of RSU symbolises openness and the university's continuous development. The graphic elements symbolise a ripple effect caused by exchanging knowledge, experience, research, inventions, ideas and waves of discussion and intellectual growth that meet and overlap serving as an agent of change in Latvia and the world. These features shape RSU into an international and open centre for research, cooperation and growth.
