Polish term or phrase: osobotwórcza rola
Fragment tekstu naukowego o zmianach społecznych dotykających uczelni wyższych:

"Działanie wychowawcze uniwersytetu polega na budzeniu i pogłębianiu w młodych umysłach zrozumienia olbrzymiej doniosłości, którą posiada dla ludzkości prawda obiektywna i praca około jej zdobywania [...] Współcześnie zapominamy jednak o tej ważnej osobotwórczej roli uczelni wyższej, pewnie a priori przyjmując, że pracujemy i współpracujemy z ludźmi dorosłymi, już osobowościowo ukształtowanymi. Tymczasem, czas edukacji w szkole wyższej oraz styl funkcjonowania środowisk akademickich, zgodnie z ideami, które przeświecały kształceniu uniwersyteckiemu, szczególnie powinien służyć szeroko rozumianemu procesowi doskonalenia człowieka."

role/ function (in) promoting personal development/ growth


Explanation:
As one of possible options or: a role/ function to promote….( in the meaning ‘aiming at’).
Examples (from universities- mission)
Student Life supports classroom learning, promotes personal development and enriches…
[…]
self direction and by promoting personal development and empowerment.


It is a ‘role/ function ‘aiming at personality development’ and although the expression ‘aiming at personality development’ actually frequently appears at universities in India; thus being- to some degree- associated with a certain educational philosophy and/ or mission of these universities, the expression could also be an option, since, as we can read in one of sources:
[…]
Education shall aim at the full development of personality, striving for the rearing of the people….

Here the mentioned expressions from universities - India

[...]education aimed at harmonious development of personality physical, intellectual, moral and …
[...]Various cultural activities aiming at personality development of students.

Besides, I like the version of Joanna- why not?

Example sentence(s):
  • […] individual students to promote their psychosocial and cognitive development.
