New signatories of the Magna Charta Universitatum

NUSCT is pleased to announce that two more of its members, namely the University of Gibraltar and the University of Greenland, have joined fellow members of NUSCT in becoming signatories of the Magna Charta Universitatum, thus further reinforcing the network’s commitment to the principles of the Magna Charta Declaration.

The Magna Charta Universitatum is a document that  was originally signed by 388 rectors and heads of universities from all over Europe and beyond on 18 September 1988, coinciding with the 900th anniversary of the University of Bologna.

The MCU Declaration ( ), which has been updated this year, contains principles of academic freedom and institutional autonomy as a guideline for good governance and self-understanding of universities, present and future.
