The University assumes Lusófona with the institution responsible for scientific, cultural, social and economic space of geographically and linguistically with over 200 million inhabitants.

Civil society and citizens in general expect the universities and institutions of higher education in general are one of the poles of the central development of their countries and their culture. In the midst of several hardships and constraints, and a legal framework at national, economic and social is not always favorable, higher education, particularly private higher education, has been playing this a globally positive role in Portugal over the last thirty years.

Massification, internationalization, innovation and entrepreneurship, so are terms that have become part of the vocabulary of university life and what matters to each institution able to internalize the activities of your day to day. The changes in the profile of the target groups of institutions have been accompanied by profound changes in teaching and training models, particularly those that resulted from implementation of the Bologna Declaration. Above all, today's higher education institutions are required to define clearly what they want is for their role in society and what is its contribution to social, economic and social community in which they operate.

The Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias has as its core mission through its teaching and research for the scientific, cultural, economic and social development of Portugal and all countries where Portuguese is spoken. In order to achieve these goals the University develops training activities, research and service in diverse areas of knowledge relevant to society, and is constantly and actively establish itself as a valuable partner and indispensable to all those who like her, believe that higher education and knowledge are the main drivers of development and progress of our society."
