About US

Because of its transformative nature, the Universidad de Antioquia affects all social sectors through research, teaching and outreach. Research and teaching constitute the pivotal points of the academic life of the University, and both are joined by outreach in order to achieve institutional goals of an academic or social kind. As a source of knowledge and teaching support, research is a significant part of its curriculum. It aims at generating and proving knowledge intended to the development of science, learning and skills, as well as the production and adaptation of technology in order to find solutions to both regional and national problems. Research-based teaching allows students to be trained in the scientific and professional fields of their choice, by developing curricular programs and using teaching methods that ease the achievement of the ethical and academic purposes of the University. Because of its diffusive and formative nature, teaching has a social function involving scientific and moral responsibilities for teachers regarding not only their students, but to the Institution and society.
