Central bodies and governance

The University of Verona strives for excellence in teaching, research and innovation. It has 22,000 students and 1,500 staff including lecturers, researchers, technical and administrative personnel who work to continually improve and grow the university.
A forward-thinking institution which continuously seeks to strengthen the link between its degree courses and the real world of work, the university’s main objective for the near future is to become progressively more welcoming and adapted to student needs.

The University of Verona is a young, dynamic university deeply connected to the beautiful city of Verona and the surrounding area. We benefit from a rich network of national and international academic partnerships, with a focus on innovation in teaching and services for students. Our university departments cover a range of disciplines, and we aim to embrace all the many spheres of knowledge.
The University of Verona’s strategic objectives are centred on the pursuit of quality and sustainability. Merit is highly valued and excellence is encouraged. We also believe it is important to be able to maintain our current level of activity in the long term. Attention is therefore given to the feasibility of our projects as well as securing adequate resources to achieve future objectives.

The University of Verona has received prestigious national and international recognition, and this encourages us to continue improving. We constantly invest resources to make facilities and services more welcoming and suited to our students, academic and administrative staff. Professionalism and precision, together with flexibility and a predisposition to innovation, are respected values at our university as well as in life.
