On October 16, 2020, the University of Tuscia joined the «Manifesto dell’Università inclusiva», developed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to facilitate the access of refugees to university education and research and to promote social integration and active participation in academic life.

The Manifesto aims to promote the condition of young holders of international protection who intend to continue their studies and research in the country of asylum, and stems from the awareness that cultural, technical and intellectual experiences can be a great resource for Italy.

Joining the Manifesto represents the first step of collaboration between UNHCR and the network of Italian universities involved in the University Corridors for Refugees (UNI-CO-RE) project, aimed to promote inclusion initiatives for asylum seekers and refugees within the training courses of the University of Tuscia.

The University Corridors for Refugees (UNI-CO-RE) project, coordinated by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), in 2020 allowed 20 refugee students (from Eritrea, Sudan, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo) to arrive in Italy and continue their university studies in one of the participating Italian universities (University of Cagliari, Florence, L'Aquila, Milan (Statale), Padua, Perugia, Pisa, Rome (Luiss), Sassari, and Venice (IUAV).

Professor Mario Savino of the Department of Literary and Linguistic, Communicational and Historical Juridical European Institutions (DISTU), has been appointed the University of Tuscia representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
