Vice-rectorate for Internationalization
and Communication

Greetings from the Vice-Rector

The world is immersed in a vertiginous process of transformation, where the local and the global are intertwined in an incessant process of information generation. The information age has not been accompanied by better communication; instead, it seems quite the opposite.

It is time to integrate the various multicultural, multilingual, and global dimensions within the educational system to instill a sense of global citizenship in students. The significant cultural and linguistic barriers we face must be resolved through communication, dialogue, and listening. To this end, and recognizing the key role of internationalization for the success of our university in the next 50 years, the Vice Rectorate for Internationalization and Communication has as its primary objective to serve the university community in the quest to open the doors of our university and extend our scope of action to the global horizon of the 21st century.

To be heard and to listen to continue accompanying Valencian society in the design of a prosperous and inclusive future for all.
