WSG University in Bydgoszcz, Poland
The WSG University in Bydgoszcz is the largest private institution of higher education in Northern Poland and a unique example of developing the idea of an engaged university.
An engaged university is oriented towards and strategically positioned to deliver a range of societal contributions, benefits and impacts. The priority in third mission activities is engagement and the institution accordingly develops its people, organizational capacity and external collaborations. An engaged university is an influential organization within the wider ecosystem and is focused on, but not limited to providing greater social and cultural impacts for the city and region.
Yet University hasn’t been satisfied with just that. Almost each year the university campus keeps gaining new facilities and functions. Our university arena is a still developing live organism, teeming with energy since early morning until late evening, open to all city inhabitants.
