higher education and research training\r\nWe are convinced that achieving such integration makes the university a much nicer place to learn and work.\r\n\r\nProud of the nearly eight-century history of our Institution, we are striving to keep pace with the ever-faster changes of the modern world as we look to the future.\r\n\r\nWe accept the challenge of training competent, open-minded professionals, aware of the rapidly changing needs of a collective human society, for we are all but convinced that knowledge is the most rewarding achievement for mankind.\r\nIn allegiance to these principles, we are pursuing excellence, making every effort to improve our academic and research standards.\r\nWe are tirelessly reassessing our current standings pushing changes through, whenever needed.\r\n\r\nIt isn’t easy! But, we feel that the greater the challenge, the greater the reward.\r\n\r\nWe work hard to create a vibrant intellectual environment as the appropriate milieu for world class research and training.\r\n\r\nThis, combined with the many attractions of our very special city, will make the time spent in Naples and at our university a most rewarding one.
