New Building in the Raval

>

  • The election of Dr. Badia i Margarit as rector of the University of Barcelona in 1977 marked the beginning of a period of normalization, modernization and democratization.
  • In 1985, new Statutes were approved for the University, restoring the autonomy which the institution had enjoyed during the Second Republic.  
  • With respect to facilities, the Faculty of Geology was built (1985-1986), teaching began on the Bellvitge Health Sciences Campus (Nursing, Medicine, Dentistry and Podiatry) in 1982, the Mundet Campus was developed during the nineteen-nineties (Teacher Training, Education and Psychology) and a new building opened in the district of the Raval in 2006 for the Faculty of Philosophy and the Faculty of Geography and History.
  • After the UB’s Statutes of 1997, the current Statute of 2003 has served to reinforce the role of the faculties and schools as a focal point of university activity and to strengthen the University’s capabilities in the areas of research and teaching.
  • In this framework, our University has undertaken an action plan intended to respond to the current and future needs of Catalan society.  The plan includes the creation of new departments, the promotion of lifelong learning, increasingly international activity, deepening links to the productive sector, improved infrastructure and a better organization of the UB’s campuses, modernized systems of management and planning, and more widespread use of information technology.
