International Linkages

Universitas is Latin for universality.

We envision a society directed by leaders who are competent, with stable  character and well-formed conscience. We believe that good governance can be traced back to the formation received by leaders, with the right values planted in their hearts and minds while they are still young.

Exposure to conferences, internships and other programs offered by organisations with similar objectives is a key component of Universitas’ fellowship program. It aims to help its fellows grasp the universality of its aims as they are promoted in various countries around the world. In that way, they could learn practical solutions that may be applied to help solve the problems faced by leaders in their own social milieu.
