University of the World
Our role as a global university is simple. We focus on making lives better for people everywhere. We improve the health, quality of life, prosperity and social mobility of communities near and far. Our activities include global research pursuits, partnerships, policies, and the study of language and cultures. Our challenges don’t have borders. Why should we?
