Every year there are more and more languages on the UAB campus. It is becoming more common to hear different languages on public transport, in open spaces, faculty corridors, services for the educational community, etc. This enormous linguistic capital is used to maintain social relations and gain access to the scientific and professional knowledge that the UAB promotes.
Far from the myth of the Tower of Babel, plurilingualism is by no means a punishment or a source of confusion, but part of human heritage, or rather a daily asset, that needs to be promoted and maintained as a seal for those institutions with a European vocation such as the UAB.
