The UANDES Institutional Project is the conceptual framework of all our university work and is expressed through our Mission, Vision and Philosophy. Inspired by the teachings of the Catholic Church, and particularly of Saint Josemaría, it is based on the cultivation of vanguard superior knowledge, the integral education of students, spreading knowledge to society and vocation of permanence in time.
This is possible through three of the main purposes of our educational project:
- Academic Training
- Research and Innovation
- Outreach and Relationship with Society
The student is the center, beginning and end of the pedagogical effort of the University, since our goal is to provide an integral formation to develop people that stand out in the professional practice by their technical competence, culture, criterion and decision-making capacity, focused on the needs of the human being and with a behavior according to the ethical principles of Christian inspiration.
Through our Educational Model we want to guarantee the delivery of the fundamental contents of each discipline and the development of skills, through innovative methodologies, stimulating dialogue and reflection, encouraging creative and critical thinking, collaborative attitudes, and professional skills.
The purpose of our Educational Model is manifested, firstly, in the institution’s graduate profile, which describes the expected performance of our graduates, expressed in knowledge, skills and values.
