UFS Rainbow sketch

The Unit for Institutional Change and Social Justice envisions the creation of a socially fair and inclusive university through high-impact practices, research, and advocacy. To support this ambitious goal, the Unit adopts a co-creative approach, collaborating with stakeholders to cultivate a welcoming environment that embodies UFS values of excellence, innovation, impact, accountability, care, social justice, and sustainability.

This approach recognizes that diverse backgrounds and cultures play a crucial role in realizing Vision 130, where the University aims to be a hub of innovation and societal impact, challenging conventions, advancing local and global knowledge, and contributing to the decolonial transition towards a more just society as it pursues its values.
