Udostępnij strone


In March 2022 Collegium Civitas received the certificate European School of Sustainability Sciences and Research 2022-2024. ESSSR is an inter-university consortium composed by members which share an interest on sustainability science and on matters related to sustainable development. It is a key organization, filling in a gap in respect of the coordination of sustainability science teaching and research at European universities seen today.

Collegium Civitas consistently undertakes actions for sustainable development, through research, strategic partnerships and various educational initiatives. Our university joined ESSSR officially in 2021 and the certificate for the upcoming two years proves our commitment to the mission of ESSSR.

The mission of ESSSR is to provide a framework upon which teaching and research within the remit of sustainability science may be further developed at European universities, by means of joint, digitally-oriented teaching programmes, research projects, PhD training and quality scientific publications to be published in high calibre journals. The objectives are aligned with Collegium Civitas’ mission.

Collegium Civitas was the first Polish university to partner with United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), and has just launched a joint master’s degree programme in Strategic Peace and Conflict Studies. We also work with UN Global Compact Polska, a UN agency working for sustainable business, which includes the implementation of joint projects (Friday Films with UN Global Compact), and academic cooperation (UN Global Compact Polska experts conduct classes at Collegium Civitas). In 2019 we also joined a group of signatories of the University Declaration of Social Responsibility. In addition, Collegium Civitas is one the leaders in internationalization with over 100 partner universities, numerous international projects, over 20 degree programmes in English and students from around the world – currently almost 70 countries are represented among our student body.
