The 30th anniversary of the signing of Magna Charta Universitatum
September 18, 1988. in the presence of many political leaders and representatives of society, 388 rectors signed the Magna Charta Universitatum. This document remains as important for university missions as it did when it was signed. The signing of the document became the main reference point for the basic values and principles of the university, and it has now been signed by over 800 university leaders from around the world. Every year, the Magna Charta Observatory organizes an international conference that aims to meet the current challenges related to the observance of basic values and celebrates the ceremony during which more rectors sign the Magna Charta Universitatum. The conference and the ceremony in 2018 took place on 17 and 18 September 2018 in Salamanca, Spain, on the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the University of Salamanca.
