Social Responsibility


    The IPAM’s Social Responsibility (SR) policy serves three entities: the Student, the University and the surrounding Community.
    The importance of a volunteering experience for the student adds value to their professional training and enriches their development as a person and as a citizen.

    For IPAM, social responsibility practices mean greater proximity to the community, a useful contribution and a responsible image in line with its own institutional philosophy, whose values are guided by truth, transparency, rigour and the sharing of knowledge.

    This translates into an invaluable gain for the community. It is in a narrative of solidarity and social participation that we find a more balanced and fairer society, and that we focus on a sound and sustainable development. This is the benefit we offer to the community.
    Creating Global Professionals also means fostering impactful and aware citizens, prepared to create a sustainable world, socially, economically and environmentally.
