Término o frase en español: le compromete a trabajar al servicio
I'm translating a report about the efforts of a public university in the Basque Country to introduce a new evaluation and improvement system for the teaching performance of faculty staff. It is based on the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) framework for qualifications.

I'm undecided about how to handle the term in question here and would welcome your suggestions.

Context:

"La UPV/EHU es la única universidad pública al servicio de la sociedad vasca. En el Plan Estratégico se subraya este hecho y se afirma que “el concepto de público incluye elementos de pertenencia y compromiso con su entorno, de apertura a todos los estratos sociales y de pluralidad social y cultural”. Por esta razón, la UPV/EHU tiene un compromiso ineludible con la calidad, la excelencia y la equidad en la Educación Superior. El carácter público de la UPV/EHU le compromete a trabajar al servicio del bien común y del desarrollo colectivo, por encima de intereses individuales o grupales."

Going into UK English.

Many thanks.

has an unaviodable responsibility to offer


Explicación:
My try:

The UPV/EHU is the only public university at the service of the Basque society. This is highlighted in the Strategic Plan, which states that, "the concept of public includes aspects such as the feeling of belonging and the commitment to the surrounding environment; open to all the social strata and displaying a social and cultural plurality”. For this reason, the UPV/EHU has an unaviodable responsibility to offer quality, excellence and equity in Higher Education. The public nature of the UPV/EHU entails working towards achieving collective development and providing common benefits, rather than satisfying the interests of individuals or groups."

Coincido  Charles Davis: (Committed, with double t.) I was thinking along the same lines. Perhaps "As a public institution, UPV is committed...". "Committed" is what they always say, and it covers both duty and determination.

  -> Thanks, Charles - I like your suggestion, more succinct :)

Coincido  Nigel Wheatley: there's several ways you could translate the source phrase, but this suggestion is the one that seems most natural to me

  -> Thanks, Nigel!

Coincido  Yvonne Gallagher: agree with other comments

  -> Thanks, Gallagy :)

Coincido  Richard Hill: There could be a case for using obliged rather that committed, in that obliged would include "ineludible", and committed could suggest that its commitment is out of choice as opposed to obligation

  -> Thanks, Rich - interesting point, but sounds better for them to say they're 'committed' :)

Coincido  neilmac: Not at all. I prefer using it occassionally to repeating other synonyms too often...

  -> Thanks, Neil - but then you usually have to follow it with '..the fact' or something like that, don´t you? Makes it a little bit long.
