Ambition and strategy

Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) is the result of a meeting of the minds of the stakeholders in higher education and research in Grenoble and Valence.
The University stays true to its mandates, and is committed to meeting the scientific, social and environmental challenges of the 21st century. Its impact is felt on a daily basis through the actions of its 58,000 students, 4,000 lecturers, teacher-researchers and researchers, as well as through the 3,500 members of its administrative and technical staff.
The UGA is committed to the success of its students and to ensuring that its staff members are able to carry out their duties in an optimum work environment. To this end, the University uses the knowledge it generates and shares with the community to act for the development of the region, the social openness of the university, and the promotion of diversity and non-discrimination - placing particular emphasis on gender equality.Working in tandem with its national research partners and drawing on the presence of the considerable scientific resources in its area, the University has developed its research and innovation policy on an international scale.
It pushes the boundaries of knowledge by providing support to its disciplines and encouraging cooperation and dialogue between them to build the interdisciplinarity required to tackle the socio-economic and cultural issues we face today, and further highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
