Its collaborations strengthen institutional capacities, develop university leaders, foster cultures of quality, support teaching excellence, enhance internationalization, and promote open society and democratic practices. These initiatives take place within the CIVICA and OSUN university alliances, Eramsus+ framework, and bilateral partnerships.
