Foundation: 2006

Mission: The ISU mission is to generate, disseminate and apply knowledge to advance science and contribute to the society both at local and international levels. The ISU mission relies on the three following principles of unity: Unity of research and teaching; knowledge is generated and disseminated by the same individuals, while students are provided with an opportunity to engage in the creation of knowledge; Unity of general and specialized education: ISU is one of the first universities to have introduced significant elements of liberal arts into Georgia’s higher educational programmes, combining them with strict requirements for specialized education; Unity of the universal and local, which combines generating universally applicable scientific knowledge with regional, national and local focuses, and a clear understanding of the civic mission of the university.

Vision: The ISU vision as explained in the Strategy for the years 2018-2024 determines the university’s positioning and the Strategy outcome. By the year 2024 ISU will be a leading and rapidly advancing university in Georgia and the entire region using innovative approaches for creating a solid foundation for scientific and technological progress, high-quality academic activities and public welfare.
