Knowledge-based society is forming Latvia’s and Daugavpils socioeconomic environment and University must be core promoter of the development, because each of the academic staff and student must be keen for new knowledge, work hard to research and discover and actively pass on the acquired cognitions and results to society in general. For this reason DU motto is Scientia Vinces that means “Through knowledge you win”. And our main goal – to become a modern scientific University, which educates not only students but society in general!
