UM Vision & Mission


The University of Macau (UM) wishes to position itself as a university with firm roots in Macao, while at the same time being committed to participating in the development of the Greater Bay Area. UM hopes to integrate itself into national development while reaching out to the world. Through quality student-centred education, key research subjects with international impact, and a high standard of community services, it aspires to become an internationally recognised university of excellence.


The University of Macau endeavours to leverage its uniqueness and strengths, as highlighted by a learning environment where Chinese culture plays a major role and diverse cultures coexist, and by a system of whole-person education underpinned by faculties and residential colleges in an international education setup. The university is committed to:

  • Upholding the university motto – Humanity, Integrity, Propriety, Wisdom and Sincerity;
  • Cultivating citizens with innovative abilities who exhibit love for their home country, possess global perspectives and competitiveness, and shoulder social responsibilities necessary for the development of Macao, the nation and beyond;
  • Promoting academic research and industry-academia-research cooperation to facilitate sustainable socio-economic development of Macao and support the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, thus serving the nation and humanity at large;
  • Being firmly rooted in Macao, serving and enriching the local community at multiple levels and on all fronts.
