Vision and Values

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a global community of academics and professionals who want to share their passion for knowledge with students around the world. Professors Without Borders aims to bridge the educational divide between countries, as well as between students and their teachers. We aspire to halt the brain drain by bringing teachers in rather than taking students out.

Our Values

Progress: There is no development without education. Education is the fastest and most beneficial investment a government can make in the future of its country. Our teachers contribute to the individual success of each student and thereby to the progress of the countries in which we work.

Innovation: As a professional program with long-term goals, we are committed to innovating and integrating new teaching techniques and technology wherever possible.

Fun: Education should be fun. Students who enjoy learning will be self-motivated to teach themselves in the long term.

Integrity: Education is also about sharing values such as honesty and fairness. Integrity is at the very core of what we stand for. Our lecturers are contributing their time to the organisation and all our efforts must be met with local support to ensure the long-term success of our program.

Security: We will not expose our staff to unnecessary risks. We only go to countries where we have local support and that we have visited ourselves. We aim to work as partners with local universities and will not develop a program in any place that we have not personally investigated to ensure the safety of our teachers. For all our programs, we take out insurance for our professors and for ourselves.
