University of Vitez has a vision of the future based on the premise that the societies in the region of South Eastern and Eastern Europe are in the process of changes, reforms and transition towards the civil democratic societies characterized by parliamentary pluralism, a state of law, a state of legislation and market economy with the predominance of private ownership.
There is no doubt that in the new era the fresh deeply rooted knowledge is a prerequisite which, above all, means a step forward from the present cultural and social surroundings in Bosnia and Herzegovina towards a new view of the world and a different approach to the economy, legal system, health care, information dissemination and knowledge acquirement.
A holistic approach to the phenomenon of “good” for each individual means the improvement of individual and family health, democratization of knowledge, free will and responsibility, ensuring the high quality living and integration of an individual with his/her environment, family and local community. Within these tasks, the University aims to take over responsibility for performing the role of the educator.
The efficiency and effectiveness of the studies, attractiveness of multidisciplinary teaching programmes which correspond to the challenges ahead, as well as psychological and entrepreneurial motivation of students through the interactive pedagogical technologies in the organization and teaching and scientific processes- all the above mentioned contribute to the high rate of successful students what, on the other hand, proofs the overall quality of the knowledge and skills transferred to students, but also the highest level of students’ motivation.
