The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities a higher education institution may carry out within Erasmus+.

The efforts to strengthen and develop international collaboration, multiculturalism, mutual respect and understanding, as well as sustainable development are the foundation of Collegium Civitas activities. Our mission is fully compatible with the values expressed through the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education, with its provisions being observed in all the aspects of our work, as they constitute an integral element of Collegium Civitas policy. Thus, participation in Erasmus+ Programme is a natural path for us to follow in furthering our development and our mission. Please read our Erasmus+ Policy Statement for the years 2021-2027:
