Tecce wins third term

November 4, 1994

Giorgio Tecce, 71, has been elected for a third term as Magnifico Rettore of Rome's La Sapienza University, Europe's biggest institution of higher education, and second only in the world in size to Mexico City University.

Professor Tecce, a molecular biologist, was first elected in 1988 and again in 1991. He won the latest elections on the third ballot after his two main rivals, who were never a serious threat, accepted Tecce's appeal for unity, and withdrew.
