A Magna Charta Universitatum Member

Roskilde University is a Magna Charta Universitatum member institution. The Magna Charta Universitatum is a document that was signed by 388 rectors and heads of universities from all over Europe and beyond on 18 September 1988, the 900th anniversary of the University of Bologna. The document contains principles of academic freedom and institutional autonomy as a guideline for good governance and self-understanding of universities in the future.
Academic freedom is the foundation for the independent search for truth and a barrier against undue intervention for both government and interest groups.
