Universidad de Antioquia

Mission functions 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. Research As a source of knowledge and teaching support, research is a significant part of our 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. Teaching 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. Outreach University Outreach reflects the permanent and direct relationship between the University and society, operating in two-way projection: the Institution's presence in society and the opposite. It is carried out by means of interactive methods and programs with different sectors and social groups, expressed in artistic, scientific, technical and technological activities, moreover consultancy, advisory and auditing, as well as programs intended to the diffusion of the arts, knowledge and the exchange of experience and financial support for the University job. It includes continuing education programs and other activities aimed to ensure general welfare. Thus the Institution fulfills one of its main duties; this demands that its alumni, as the living and acting expression of the University in society, play a central role. The University assimilates the different cultural productions, turning society needs into a teaching and research topic; society, in turn, takes part in the university production and benefits from it.
