The Rectorate of the PLUS
The Paris Lodron University Salzburg PLUS has a mission to firmly anchor itself as the most important educational and research institution in the region, and to strengthen its scientific, cultural and economic significance both nationally and internationally. The unwavering commitment to its profile as a widely diversified university will be strengthened through the successful development of its existing and also new, exciting study programmes.
The PLUS feels obliged to offer ways of solving and adapting to the major challenges facing society, and to be a driver of social development itself. This not only makes it possible to live competitively, but also with the utmost respect for sustainability principles and conflict management.
The Rectorate is responsible for the operational implementation of these goals.
