The special role of universities, as a place for creating and transmitting knowledge about the reality around us, obliges them to take into account and apply the principles of social responsibility in all areas of activity and to disseminate these principles among stakeholders.

Bearing in mind the good of higher education in Poland, aware of our role in implementing the principles of sustainable development, ensuring high quality research and education, and caring for the comprehensive development of the academic community, we pledge:
