Question about English (UK)

Hello, I am a little confused about the modifying function of (‘s) here.
###
Why not fulfill the university’s millennium-old mission by sharing ideas freely?
###
In this sentence, UNIVERSITY’S modifies MISSION, but actually a noun can also modify another noun, such as (BIRD nest), so why don’t we use UNIVERSITY millennium-old mission here?

Thanks:)
