About the FAS

Mission, vision and values

The Fundació Autònoma Solidària (FAS) a university-based social organisation created in 1999 that collaborates in applying social, solidarity-based and cooperative policies for the development and equality of opportunities at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. 

In 2016 and 2017, the Foundation underwent a process of internal reflection and rethinking with regard to its lines of action, resulting in in a new strategic plan that defined the mission, vision and objectives of the Foundation, namely, to provide tools that contribute to making the university community part of an active and critical citizenry and to become an agent of social change.

To do this, the FAS designs and executes university social-action and awareness-raising projects, promoting a critical spirit with the ultimate goal of generating social impact aimed at fostering social justice and the improvement of the general environment and people’s quality of life.


The vision of the FAS is to become a university-based social organisation of reference that catalyses and strengthens the resources, knowledge and values of the university community in order to help move them towards social change.
