The Statute is the legislative element of the University. It lays down the general rules of organisation for teaching, research and administration.
The first UPO Statute was issued in 2002. The Gelmini Reform (L. 240/2010) set out changes to university statutes in terms of organisation and governance, defining legislative principles and criteria. On the basis of this law, UPO issued a new Statute in 2011.
The current Statute has been in force since 14 June 2014, and can be downloaded by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.
