Message from the Presidency Team

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.
