Abstract: In our society, universities are one of the principal driving forces behind social, economic and cultural change, and the University of Barcelona is committed to playing its part in supporting social progress. As such, social responsibility must be threaded through each of the areas of university activity, bringing with it the concern and commitment needed to ensure a positive impact on our country. This report provides a comprehensive overview of the UB’s policies and actions in the different areas of social responsibility. At the same time, it is an important tool through which to give an account of our actions to the wider society, the university community and all our stakeholders, setting out our commitments and detailing the objectives and outcomes of the UB’s activities. In his introduction, the rector, as the highest authority of our institution, highlights the most important facts and milestones of the academic year 2013-2014, a year in which I would like to single out the increase in the UB’s creation of value for society against a backdrop of ongoing economic constraints. The UB has ensured the admission of students with financial hardships; expanded its course offering, which is more open to the world; undertaken the highest-level research, and kept its commitment to transfer results to society. These actions are reflected in the UB’s higher international rankings and recognition. The Board of Trustees wants to underscore its commitment to the University of Barcelona in the enhancement and development of our social responsibility, and to acknowledge the commitment of the entire university community toward building a university with socially responsible teaching, research and management.
