Each year the Magna Charta Observatory organises an international conference to address current challenges in upholding the fundamental values and serving society responsibly and celebrates in a ceremony as more rectors sign the Magna Charta Universitatum. This year’s conference and ceremony take place on 14, 15 and 16 September 2022 in Bologna.
The Magna Charta Universitatum, first signed by 388 rectors in 1988 in the presence of many political leaders and representatives of society and revised in 2020 to reflect changes in the world faced by universities, continues to underpin the mission and operations of universities everywhere. Over 950 university leaders from all over the world have now signed it.
The theme of the 2022 MCO conference is Universities engaging with society in turbulent times. Find out more and register on the Magna Charta Observatory website.
