Aix-Marseille University (AMU) is the largest multidisciplinary French-speaking university in France, with 80,000 students and nearly 8,000 staff on five large campuses that meet international standards. Present in 9 cities in 4 departments of the Southern Region, it is known as a "research-intensive university," housing 122 research facilities linked to major national research organizations.
The teaching of quality courses, backed by major research teams, accompanied by measures to encourage student entrepreneurship and the possibility for economic players to access these resources are all levers for territorial development and its influence.
As a responsible university, Aix-Marseille University makes "living together" a priority. The affirmation of its commitment to sustainable development in all its dimensions - human, environmental and heritage - is embodied in numerous actions and measures: A travel plan, a waste management plan, raising students' awareness of the climate emergency and the introduction of a sustainable development bonus, the creation of the AMU Climate Council, as well as measures to combat sexual, sexist and homophobic harassment, the implementation of a disability master plan, measures to combat racism and anti-Semitism, and numerous sports and festive events on campus. With 10,000 international students and more than 40 diplomas in international partnerships, AMU has been a laureate of the European Commission's call for projects to build "CIVIS, a European Civic University" with its 7 European partners, contributing to major societal challenges, particularly in Africa and the Mediterranean area.
