United Nations Academic Impact cover
Mission - To bring into association with the United Nations, and with each other, institutions of higher learning throughout the world.

- To serve as a viable point of contact for ideas and proposals relevant to the United Nations mandate.

- To promote the direct engagement of institutions of higher education in programmes, projects and initiatives relevant to this mandate.
