Global responsibility: The building of a sustainable world requires the generation and dissemination of new forms of knowledge, giving universities a special responsibility to bear, which the Freie Universität Berlin takes seriously. It strives to increase sustainability across the university's areas of responsibility, from research and teaching to administration and its own campus.
The Freie Universität Global Campus programs are committed to the global UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdgs). The SDGs' interconnectedness provides us with a framework for relating and addressing critical global and local problems across many levels, for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.



Academic quality: As part of the Freie Universität Berlin – a German University of Excellence with long-standing partnerships with other elite global universities – the Global Campus programs are dedicated to providing globally-responsible study abroad programs of the highest academic quality. These programs constantly improve themselves via rigorous and frequent internal evaluations. Several programs have received recognition and/or awards, for example, those of the Forum on Education Abroad's Quality Improvement Program (QUIP) or the German government’s “Germany, Land of Ideas” initiative.
