The UNIV Inspire workshop is an experience that is authentically human. It’s an international encounter in Rome, geared towards young women seeking new perspectives on life, faith, and meaningful work. Participants from dozens of countries have the opportunity to explore, reflect, and discover together, convinced that each person is uniquely gifted and called to be a catalyst of transformation, renewing the world from within.
UNIV 2024 Theme: The Human Factor
Technological advances in Artificial Intelligence have surprised us all. But they have also made us ask big questions: What is human intelligence? What is human creativity? Or even deeper: What makes us human?

Students are matched with a mentor in their professional field of interest and are able to meet with them regularly. The purpose of mentoring is to assist each student to discover her talents, the contribution that she can make, and seek excellence in her studies, career and life skills through concrete goal-setting.
Virtual platforms have enabled us to connect over 20 students with professionals in their area of interest. Mentors and mentees connect with each other roughly 3 times per semester.
“If then a practical end must be assigned to a University course, I say it is that of training good members of society… It is the education which gives a man a clear, conscious view of their own opinions and judgements, a truth in developing them, an eloquence in expressing them, and a force in urging them. It teaches him to see things as they are, to go right to the point, to disentangle a skein of thought to detect what is sophistical and to discard what is irrelevant.”
