Rezumat:The European Union is defined by a complex diversity, including nations, languages, civilizations, cultures, values, traditions etc. The principle of unity in diversity expresses a fundamental goal on whose achievement the common European future depends. The same principle states a global necessity, in a world of great diversity, reshaped by the globalization process. A fundamental means of achieving the unity in diversity objective through communication is multilingualism. The process of teaching and learning foreign languages is a main concern in higher education, in the context of the European policies concerning multilingualism. Foreign languages, especially English and French, have a compulsory regime in the study programmes from all academic specialties. A difficulty in this process refers to the perception of languages as complementary disciplines, sometimes marginal, in the non-philological studies programmes, which cover the largest area of higher education systems. Such perception affects the teaching and learning process, its quality and efficiency. Considering the need for language learning a priority remains a matter of mentality, which must be resolved through education in universities, by means of various educational strategies. The arguments are essential: mastering communication competencies in foreign languages provides universal communication tools and, at the same time, means of entering the world of education, culture, knowledge, by access to endless bibliographic resources both on classic and virtual format. Foreign languages are open doors to elite education, training, development, culture, communication, to the universe of knowledge. Unity in diversity in the European Union, the Europe of Knowledge, the new European humanism, the alliance of civilizations, and globalization are possible also by means of foreign languages as universal communication instruments. Homo europeus, at the same time homo universalis and the global citizen, is the multilingual man.
