The University of the Balearic Islands, heir to the ‘Universitat Lul·liana de Mallorca’, was created in 1978; the first of the democratic era. Since then, this public institution of higher education has travelled the road that has led it to increasingly higher standards of academic quality and social responsibility.
The University of the Balearic Islands is rooted in our land yet it is also universal, open to the world; it holds true to the principles of providing services and of collaborating with social and business actors, as well as with sustainability and respect for the environment. Thereby, it has become a key institution for the future and the backbone of our islands, and we would like it to continue to be a lever of social, cultural and economic progress; a lever supported by teaching and scientific excellence.
Bearing in mind, at all times, that the culture of excellence must impregnate all the university activities, we have focused our efforts on these four axes: constant improvement of teaching, both classroom and virtual; staying at the cutting edge of research excellence; offering a cultural and social projection that impregnates every corner of our islands; and fomenting the internationalization of university activity, covering, through exchanges, teaching, research, innovation and administrative activities.
The University of the Balearic Islands makes available to its students all the resources that will enable them to gain a comprehensive education in which they will end up acquiring knowledge, values and skills in a collective learning environment where the university works with and for people; with courage, enthusiasm and excitement..., because people are the heart of the University.
As Rector of the University of the Balearic Islands I invite you to get to know us closely and to enjoy all the opportunities - in the field of academics and university life (sports, music, cultural and leisure activities...) - that we are able to offer you.
