The UPV is a public, dynamic and innovative institution that is dedicated to researching and teaching. The UPV maintains strong bonds with its social environment and a strong presence abroad.
Our vocation as a service results from our commitment to society. We provide our students with the knowledge they need to be able to work as graduates in their professional field, and we offer them an all-round education where they acquire technological skills, as well as a humanistic and cultural education.
We train people and we train professionals because we believe it is our duty to give our students not only knowledge but also experience. By so doing we believe that we are helping them to become free, responsible people who are aware of social problems, are capable of taking on commitments and have prospects for the future.
The teaching and administrative staff engaged by the UPV work to offer our students the high quality education they need.
