Universidad Nacional de La Matanza
San Justo, Argentina


University description (as per official university website)


The National University of La Matanza (UNLaM) was born to give response to the growing need of a higher education demand prevailing in the area. Little by little, it grew up by adding new and diverse academic courses, by means of entering into agreements with different international institutions, the development of research projects and the establishment of close bonds with the surrounding community.

The physical location of the university is found in one of the most important areas in the country , as from the demographical, political and economic point of view which failed to have a university of higher education. Until 1989, when the bill for the creation of the University was passed by the Senate, youngsters who wanted to attend a university course and lived in the area should give up their idea of continuing their studies or do it in a different place.

In 1991, the University doors opened for more than 1200 students in the three university degrees then offered: Public Accountancy, Degree in Management and Degree in Social Work and their undergraduate studies. Meanwhile, the curricula for the Engineering courses were being elaborated.

By the end of 1991, the property given by the La Matanza National University Foundation, presided over by Deputy Alberto Pierry, was finally taken. Soon, the recycling works for the construction of the classrooms and other facilities started.


The mission of University is translated in the construction of:

An educative-cultural project basically inspired in the local, provincial and national reality, and committed with it
A proposal for the environment development
An open initiative incorporated to the community, active protagonist of its progress
Virtue to these premises, the project of the UNLaM , in its main aspects, fixed as objectives:

To contribute to the retention and settlement of the youth located in La Matanza and its influential area
To serve to the necessities of the community, i.e., its habitants in general, its enterprises, institutions, professionals and other social actors
To act as a factor of change and development

To be an answer to the concrete demands of the local community; a model of excellence within the university national system; and a point of reference for the centers of high studies from the international environment.


To encourage students in an education that involves the progressive and innovative spirit, the vocation of committed leaders with the progress of community, the professional honesty, the respect for dignity of the human being and its right to truth, freedom and juridical security, and the love for the cultural, historical and social values of the community and the country.
