Magna Charta Universitatum (MCU)

UMONS is a signatory of the Magna Charta Universitatum (MCU)

The Université de Mons (UMONS) is one of the universities that have ratified the MCU 2020.

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

This charter sets out the principles of academic freedom and institutional autonomy, which constitute a guideline for good governance and the self-understanding of universities.

In 2018, a multinational group revised and updated the original Magna Charta Universitatum.

This revision was widely consulted upon and adopted by the MCO Board in July 2020.

The new text strives to better respond to and draw inspiration from contemporary challenges and concerns.
