Neither punches nor resignation

The University of Senso is a civil university educational institution, based in the Vatican City State, created by decree of His Holiness Pope Francis.

The University of Senso seeks to integrate the current academic training imparted by Universities and Higher Education Institutions, offering the essential skills for an education that integrates the 3 languages ​​of the mind, the heart and the hands. In this way, from the encounter arises the experience of meaning and inner harmony that opens us to mystery and transcendence.
