The UNITA Alliance intends to build a fully-fledged European inter-university campus based on excellent teaching and learning, research and innovation, and on civic engagement. Its goal is to drive excellence in the European Higher Education area and become attractive also for students from other continents, especially Africa and the Americas, with whom we share common languages.
UNITA students will experience a challenging multilingual and student-centred environment, closely linked to research and entrepreneurship. They will be able to build flexible personalized curricula across the universities of the Alliance based on increased mobility, physical, blended and virtual, thanks to new tools and new digital spaces, and to the development of micro-credentials on inter-comprehension methods, especially among Romance languages.
This European University, committed to being open, inclusive and effective, will be developed through a step-by-step approach, involving students and staff in the project via participative governance, with a long-term vision leading to closer integration based on sustainability and aiming to become a model.
The Alliance is firmly committed to supporting the development of the societies and territories in which it is established, and particularly of those somewhat peripheral areas such as rural and cross-border mountain regions.
UNITA aims to respond to societal challenges and empower its students and staff to act as European and global citizens strongly committed to the UN sustainable development goals and the European Green Deal, and aware of cultural and linguistic diversity, and of the challenges facing rural and mountain territories.
