UCLouvain has chosen to be a university of culture. We have made culture an integral part of university education. How can we maintain a critical outlook? How can we assign meaning? Culture can help us with these things, providing a means of scrutinising the university's study and research programmes.
Vincent BLONDEL, UCLouvain rector
In cultural terms, UCLouvain is also present in several cities. The university has a duty to contribute to the cultural and community life of the cities where it is based. Through its nature and its activities, it pushes back frontiers and encourages a spirit of openness to the world.
