The UN System Staff College (UNSSC), based in Turin, Italy, serves as a distinct, system-wide, knowledge management and learning institution, with a view to fostering a cohesive management culture across the United Nations system (UN). Created by the General Assembly to improve the Organization’s effectiveness, the UNSSC acts as an agent of change and innovation from within the system itself, by helping to build a more effective and responsive team of leaders and a stronger management culture.
