  • Sustainability
  • Capacity building in higher education systems
  • Global citizenship
  • Peace and conflict resolution
  • Addressing poverty
  • Providing opportunities for higher education to every interested person
  • Discouraging/Combating Intolerance

UNAI members are committed to promoting the principles stated above in the campus and in the communities, by involving the faculties, the university staff and directly the students, in the realization of the annual activities that are focused on the approach of the principles of the United Nations and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
