This publication is the window we open to provide news about university life at the University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia (UVic-UCC) - an institution that works towards the training and growth of people, and which has very close links with the region thanks to its campuses in Vic, Manresa, Granollers and Barcelona. New technology will enable us to instantly reach a much wider audience in a much more sustainable way, and provide much more comprehensive information than was the case in the printed version of the magazine Campus. It is also a change in the approach to news about university life at the UVic-UCC, as we will be focusing on the main areas of university life - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and social and institutional responsibility. These topics highlight the University’s growth and its commitment to its surrounding area, the future and the improvement of society.

UCampus aims to be a continuation of the magazine Campus, which began life in the 1990-1991 academic year, initially as the voice of University Studies at Vic, then as the voice of the University of Vic, and now of the University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia. The U before the word Campus is the identifying logo of the UVic-UCC, and is a typographical identifying feature and the common factor in each of the UVic-UCC's regional campuses (UVic, UManresa, UGranollers, etc.). UCampus will appear twice a year, and will highlight the most important aspects of the university that may be of interest to a wider international audience. The magazine is being published in three languages for the same reason.

We hope you will find it of interest. We look forward to receiving your suggestions and criticisms, as your opinion will help us to improve it and the magazine is ultimately for you, its readers.
