Mission and strategic plan


The University of Humanistic Studies is devoted to high-quality scientific research and education on the basis of its humanist inspiration and thereby contributes to a humane and sustainable society in which all people can lead a meaningful life.


Since its establishment in 1989, the university has been active in carrying out academic research relating to social, ethical and worldview-related issues. It also supports the practical application of the knowledge acquired as a result of this research.

It educates creative and critical professionals and takes an active position as a participant in social debates. In spite of its relatively small size – the university comprises some 80 staff members and 550 students – the University has managed to carve out its own distinctive niche.
