Mission: The mission of the University of Valencia explains the raison d'être of the institution, in accordance with the legal and statutory framework. The process of strategic reflection carried out to define the University of Valencia's Strategic Plan 2008-2011 led to the definition of the University's mission. We understand that this statement is still fully alive, although its achievement will require different objectives and lines of action that focus on new challenges and circumstances. "The mission of the University of Valencia is to train competent professionals in the European field and to promote research of international prestige and impact that contributes to the development of our society. Training and research promote the tasks that it also carries out in the field of disseminating science and culture and in reaffirming the democratic values of society in general, and of Valencia in particular. »
