In ensuring and maintaining the quality to which it aspires, it applies the principle of equivalence in diversity. There are many ways of attaining the standards CIUTI expects, but only one clear goal: developing translation, interpreting and intercultural competences to meet current market demands while empowering future professionals to meet evolving needs. This is the essence of the CIUTI mission.
