Foundation: 1088

Mission: The education and training of new generations, a passion for culture united with a deep ethical conscience, and the release of synergies from a plurality of disciplines represent the core of our mission and the role of Alma Mater as a major public university.

Vision: As a place for curating, transmitting and processing knowledge, both ancient and modern, the University adopts a student-centric approach, recognising merit and promoting the right to higher education. As a centuries-old public institution, Alma Mater sees research as central to the development of ideas, projects and technologies that satisfy current needs while also looking to the future. As a place of work, where the students, teachers and technical and administrative staff of the University meet and interact. Alma Mater is a great community, whose boundaries extend well beyond the basic roles of those who study, teach or work, seeking to develop every participant in the system. As an international institution that generates knowledge of public interest, the University is open to constant dialogue with the territories served by our (Multicampus) structures and the world as a whole, aware of our ongoing responsibility to society both today and tomorrow. Alma Mater promotes sustainability as a development strategy and the Multicampus as an integration strategy.
