As a major public entity dedicated to education and research, the mission of Rennes 2 University is to create and transmit knowledge. Based on humanist values since its creation, our University is committed to the respect of fundamental human rights and the fight against all forms of discrimination and brings together a community of men and women who share the same mission in public service.
Through our teaching programs in the arts, humanities, languages, humanities and social sciences, and sports sciences, we offer students a rich and diversified range of training that aims to provide general intellectual training as well as opportunities for professional insertion and development. We strive to ensure that they will be prepared to meet the challenges of the future (climate change, the fight against inequality, local and regional transformation, etc.).
Equally important, our research teams contribute to the understanding of major societal issues and to scientific production, as evidenced by the volume of publications and the number of events organized within the institution. These teams work in close collaboration with the main national research organizations, with the socio-economic and cultural fabric, with local authorities, and with society as a whole.
The quality and recognition of its training and research, innovation and interdisciplinarity, as well as the partnerships deployed both in France and internationally, make Rennes 2 University a leading institutional actor in the region.
