The Catholic University of Mozambique, in harmony with these words of the Apostolic Constitution EX CORDE ECCLESIAE of the Supreme Pontiff JOHN PAUL II on Catholic Universities, bases its existence on the meanings of Truth and Service and seeks permanently unity in the variety of knowledge human.

The University recognizes in its roots a strong inspiration in the values ​​of Christian civilization and does not recognize frontiers in its specific role, assuming that its task transcends the national geographic scope and surpasses idiomatic and ideological limitations.

In order to carry out its service to the Church, it is requested - always within the framework of its own competence - to be an increasingly effective instrument of cultural progress for both individuals and society.

Its research activities will therefore include the study of serious contemporary problems such as the dignity of human life, the promotion of justice for all, the quality of personal and family life, the protection of nature, the search for peace and stability a more equitable sharing of the world's riches and a new economic and political order that better serves the human community at national and international levels.

The university investigation will be directed to study in depth the roots and causes of the serious problems of our time, with special attention to its ethical and religious dimensions. "[1]

"For many years I myself have had a beneficent experience that has enriched me internally, of what is proper to university life: the ardent search for truth and its selfless transmission to young people and all those who learn to reason with rigor, to act with righteousness and to better serve human society.
