Jagiellonian University in Krakow

  • Description
  • Statute

    The Jagiel­lon­ian Uni­ver­sity — Alma Mater Jag­el­lonica — was estab­lished by King Kaz­imierz the Great, ren­o­vated by King Wla­dys­law Jagiello. Uni­ver­sity con­tin­ues its ancient her­itage of ser­vice for sci­ence and edu­ca­tion through car­ry­ing out sci­en­tific research, con­stant quest for the truth and pro­mot­ing it with sense of moral respon­si­bil­ity for the Nation and the Repub­lic of Poland. In its activ­ity the Uni­ver­sity lives up to a prin­ci­ple of PLUS RATIO QUAM VIS.

    Aca­d­e­mics Values

    In June 25, 2003 the JU Sen­ate adopted the Uni­ver­sity Code of Ethics to artic­u­late and empha­size the prin­ci­ples and val­ues which should gov­ern the aca­d­e­mic com­mu­nity. One of the fac­tors which prompted the adop­tion of the code was a gen­eral con­sen­sus that such fun­da­men­tal val­ues as the truth, respon­si­bil­ity, teach­ing excel­lence and aca­d­e­mic free­dom were in jeop­ardy. The Sen­ate noted with con­cern that their decline resulted in low­er­ing edu­ca­tional stan­dards, thus mak­ing knowl­edge and skills offered to stu­dents defi­cient. Fur­ther­more, the decline has a neg­a­tive impact on the qual­ity and progress of aca­d­e­mic research and as a con­se­quence on the well-​being of the whole nation.

    Thus the Uni­ver­sity Code of Ethics is a reminder of fun­da­men­tal aca­d­e­mic stan­dards which for long have built up the pres­tige of sci­ence, account­ing for the moral strength of the acad­e­mia and pro­vid­ing it with the basis for advanc­ing eth­i­cal and civic virtues. Their reflec­tion in the atti­tudes and activ­i­ties of, and inter­ac­tions among the mem­bers of the uni­ver­sity com­mu­nity guar­an­tee sus­tain­abil­ity of cru­cial moral val­ues that have been shaped by a long-​standing uni­ver­sity tra­di­tion. The JU Code of Ethics is sup­ple­mented by the Code of Good Uni­ver­sity Prac­tices, com­piled by the Pol­ish Rec­tors Foun­da­tion and passed by the Ple­nary Assem­bly of the Pol­ish Rec­tors Con­fer­ence on April 26, 2007
