Foundation: 1991

Mission: Vanvitelli, strong of its autonomy and the plurality of its knowledge, convinced of the importance of combining its educational vocation with the scientific one, intends to propose itself as a centre for the conservation, diffusion, advancement and innovation of knowledge. It recognizes that it has a high social and moral responsibility, and aims to spread the culture of merit and legality in the Campania region with particular reference to the geographical areas around Caserta and Naples and the other sites of the University. It strives to transmit mainly to young people a culture that can strengthen them to fulfill their duties of citizenship; it wants to help create opportunities for qualified employment that can reverse the tendency of young minds to seek their future outside of Campania and, at the same time, to attract intelligences from all over the world that can enrich the territory. The University's priority task is to produce knowledge to train potential highly qualified professionals. The University guarantees the dissemination of specific skills, but also of critical sense and methodological rigor that strengthen the ability of each citizen to contribute to the socio-economic development of the nation. Vanvitelli's challenge is to combine large numbers and quality in a territory that needs positive examples also to counterbalance some phenomena of structured illegality that host there.

Vision: Vanvitelli, focusing on the culture of evaluation, attention to the growth of its students, teachers and technical-administrative staff, openness to dialogue combined with rigor, is projected towards the enhancement of excellence and merit. Excellence in research and teaching, the use of new technologies, the modernization of administrative procedures, aim to create a model of efficiency and effectiveness that can interact with companies, local institutions and other research and training institutions for the development of the territory, projecting it in a highly qualified international context. The strong link with local history and culture, attention to saving and the environment, the practice of transparency aim to strengthen the awareness of the human heritage and knowledge of Campania, contributing to their preservation and development for the construction of concrete and lasting opportunities for young people in the wake of legality.
