Abstract: The empirical research was applied to gain insight into the content of the written statements of mission statements of HE institutions (faculties, art academies and colleges) that were entered into the register of MIZS (Slovenian Ministry of HE) in March 2016. Websites of all HE institutions were inspected. The most frequent words found in mission statements of Slovenian HE institutions are "subject area", "development", "education", "knowledge" and "research". Beside the use of descriptive analytic methods, we established and analyzed the network of keywords in mission statements of Slovenian HE institutions. Some advanced network analytic methods as the notion of island were applied. By analyzing the content of the mission statements of HE institutions in Slovenia, we have identified their key elements. As critical dimensions we recognize "the purpose and activities", "future orientation", "respect for diversity", "civic values" and "rights and obligations".
