About Sophia University Institute
The Sophia University Institute is an academic center for education and research in which life and intellectual inquiry, different cultures and diverse disciplines, meet up in a context permeated by a strong relational dimension. It is not a university setting composed of contiguous faculties, in the classic sense of the term, but rather a laboratory of interdisciplinary and intercultural experimentation: a novel and trial-blazing experience, therefore, a place of excellence at the service of human and cultural development. Sophia is an expression of the Focolare Movement (Work of Mary), developed through the inspiration of its founder, Chiara Lubich, and an international advisory group of scholars from different disciplines. www.iu-sophia.org
