Mission Statement of Saint-Joseph University of Beirut

The mission of the University articulates on three dimensions: the creation of new knowledge (research), the transmission of this knowledge (teaching) and putting this knowledge at the service of the society (service). In order to put this mission into execution, the University positions itself as an establishment of francophone language and culture, which privileges multiculturalism and trilingualism (French, Arabic and English) and adopts innovation and digital transformation. Being accessible to all social classes and communities, and at the service of the nation and the region, it fulfills its social responsibility, advocates for social inclusion and refutes any discrimination. In teaching and research, it promotes issues of sustainable development, primacy of human rights, justice, democracy, dialogue of civilizations as well as issues of meaning. Being open to the international sphere, it is determined to benefit from the extraordinary potentiality that the network of Jesuit and catholic universities present throughout the world.
