The Institute of Social Sciences' Presidency bases its mission on the values of innovation, plurality and solidarity.
In challenging times, as this one we are living, the
importance of Social Sciences is crucial to understand the world around us and
to be able to act on a society supported by humanistic orientations and actions
that allow us to fully enjoy individual dignity and human creativity.
In this context of fast social transformation, we will
continue to create conditions for students, faculty, researchers and employees
to develop and fully express their potential. It is our goal to provide
adequate and inspiring conditions for the growth of a community of
interventional, reflective citizens, committed to the creation of a more
equitable and fair society.
