from UL Rector
University of Lodz is devoted to research and education development aimed at community transformation. Our institution conducts major scientific projects with national and international grant providers, embracing a wide range of fields of exact sciences, natural sciences and humanities. Our goal is to form active global citizens who are able to think critically and understand the complexity of the modern world.
The University is involved in close cooperation with the service sector, as it provides well-qualified experts for local and international enterprises. The UL carries out research projects ordered by companies and includes business actors in education processes. Our institution is one of the largest employers in the region.
The UL is at the forefront of higher education in Poland and it has a leading position in the Lodz region. Modern infrastructure, high quality of education and a wide range of courses studied in foreign languages, all of them attract a large number of international candidates both for full-time degree programmes and for student exchange. Each year the University receives an increasing number of visiting professors who come to our University within the framework of bilateral agreements.
The University of Lodz promotes and initiates activities related to social responsibility. It was among the first universities in Poland that signed the Declaration of Social Responsibility. We are the first public university in Poland that signed the Diversity Charter. Through a variety of projects, as University Diversity, the UL builds academic community around the values of respect for cultural, religious and diverse identities as well as social sensitivity. We aim at integrating and sharing our diversity also with local community and business – in this way the university makes a difference to the social and economic well-being through the research, teaching activities and public events.
Through our global networking activities, we hope to grow an international academic community. We look forward to cooperating with you in the near future.
