MCU 2020

The Observatory has launched the new version of the Magna Charta Universitatum: the MCU 2020. The text (in English) has been adopted by the MCO's Governing Council.

The new MCU removes nothing from the original fundamental values to which universities signed up. It strives to be responsive to and resonate with contemporary challenges and concerns.

Its tone recognises that the pursuit of the fundamental values has worth along with their actual attainment, which, in practice, is a constant quest.

It  recognises the more global nature of what universities do and the wider range of local responsibilities which they have.

MCU 2020 was drafted by an international group comprising Professor Narend Baijnath, Professor Patrick Deane, Professor Marta Losada, Dr Sijbolt Noorda (Chair), Ms Eva Egon-Polak, Professor Chanita Rukspollmuang, Ms Tamires Gomes Sampaio,  Professor Francesco Ubertini, with David Lock as secretary to the group.
