Universidad Nacional de San Juan
San Juan, Argentina


University description (as per official university website)

The UNSJ born to institutional life on October 10, 1973. Work is a community dedicated to teaching, research, creation and dissemination of knowledge in all its spheres, scientific, technical, philosophical and artistic, and training of professionals to serve the common good.

Its purpose:
"Integral formation of man to live a full life, enabling him to fully experience the world of values in relation to other men.
"The formation of a free man in a truly democratic society, centered on the ideals of independence and participation.
"The formation of a man committed to the national being and its local and regional realities.

In fact, the October 10, 1973 was the culmination of a long process that began in the nineteenth century. Historians tell us that was the personal frustration of not being able to pursue higher education in the province which led to Domingo Faustino Sarmiento-created in 1839, when he was governor of San Juan, College Preparatory, a Public House Preparatory Scientific Education University. This is the more remote history of Universidad Nacional de San Juan. A professor of the College Preparatory of Mineralogy, would, years later and in the last century, the creation of a technical training school: the School of Mines, which over time underwent numerous changes, giving rise to new schools.

The first half of the twentieth century gave rise to the solid academic foundation on which to found then UNSJ. So in 1939 he created, based in Mendoza, Cuyo National University, whose School of Engineering Faculty of Engineering, Physical and Natural Sciences since 1947 work in San Juan. Also in 1947 the province was created in the course of the Normal School Teachers Sarmiento, which was thus in "School Teacher" of the teachers that were leaving the titles of "Normal Science Professor" and "Professor Normal Lyrics ". In 1958 these courses were separated from the Normal School and led to the creation of the National Institute of Secondary Teachers.

Thus, since its inception, the National University of San Juan was a response to scientific and cultural concerns of society San Juan. This was clearly demonstrated in the '60s, when the most diverse sectors of the provincial community mobilized and joined forces to San Juan had a university. The so-called Commission for the University "achieved his goal when on 11 August 1968 met the so-called" Taquini Program "for the creation of new universities. San Juan was not included in the project, but again the efforts of the San Juan community, organized a committee, managed to conduct a feasibility study. On May 10, 1973 the then coup leader, Lt. Gen. Alejandro Agustin Lanusse, signed into law 20,367 which created the National University of San Juan.

Thus, the UNSJ was organized, in principle, on the basis of the National Institute of Secondary Teachers, the Faculty of Engineering, Physical and Natural Sciences which depended on the National University of Cuyo, and the University Provincial Domingo Faustino Sarmiento. The incorporation of these structures to the new university was done in a gradual, sued several months and ended on October 10, 1973, when the UNSJ, which is part of the history of San Juan, celebrated its anniversary.

Time has not passed in vain since then. Today, despite being one of the institutions of higher education's youngest country, UNSJ is one of the most prestigious. Thousands of professionals have graduated from their classrooms and thousands of young people admitted annually to its current five faculties: Engineering, Natural Sciences, Physical and Natural Sciences, Philosophy, Humanities and Arts, Social Sciences and Architecture, Urban Planning and Design.

Many things have changed since those first steps. But many have remained, one of which is the UNSJ commitment to the needs of the community that fought for its creation.
