    Mission

    The Uni­ver­sity of Ljubl­jana prac­tices basic, applied and devel­op­ment research, striv­ing for excel­lence and qual­ity of the high­est stan­dard in all fields of sci­ence and arts, such as the human­i­ties, social sci­ences, lin­guis­tics, arts, med­i­cine, nat­ural sci­ences and technology.

    Based on its own research projects as well as advances in research at home and abroad, the Uni­ver­sity pro­vides instruc­tion and train­ing to promi­nent sci­en­tists and experts, capa­ble of lead­ing sus­tain­able devel­op­ment, with a view to respect­ing the legacy of Euro­pean Enlight­en­ment and Human­ism as well as human rights. The Uni­ver­sity also pro­motes inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and multi-​disciplinary studies.

    Achieve­ments in the fields of sci­ence and arts are shared with other uni­ver­si­ties and insti­tu­tions car­ry­ing out sci­en­tific research. It thus con­tributes its share to the world’s trea­sure of knowl­edge and at the same time, dis­sem­i­nates this knowl­edge within the country’s bor­ders. The Uni­ver­sity works in co-​operation with var­i­ous eco­nomic insti­tu­tions in both the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, with the gov­ern­ment and local author­i­ties as well as other civil insti­tu­tions. In this way it encour­ages the har­ness­ing and appli­ca­tion of its research and edu­ca­tional achieve­ments and con­tributes to social development.

    The Uni­ver­sity of Ljubl­jana has a con­sol­i­dat­ing role in the aca­d­e­mic com­mu­nity of pro­fes­sors, researchers, stu­dents and other asso­ciates, and strives to estab­lish its fine rep­u­ta­tion both at home and around the world. Its research, edu­ca­tion, pub­lic activ­i­ties and rela­tions among its mem­bers is car­ried out based on the fol­low­ing principles:

    • pro­fes­sional excel­lence or ensur­ing the high­est pos­si­ble quality,
    • aca­d­e­mic free­dom of its staff and stu­dents, par­tic­u­larly cre­ative freedom,
    • auton­omy in rela­tion to the state, pol­i­tics, cap­i­tal or church,
    • human­ism and human rights, includ­ing equal oppor­tu­nity and solidarity
