Historic context

These are the years of the dream of a better political, social and economic reality. The aspirations converge with the progressive and humanistic spirit whose influence is José Celestino Mutis and his team. It is the time of the creation of the Colombian Association of Universities, where the unity of knowledge and collaboration between educational institutions is the beacon that will guide the common objectives of both students and teachers. And since the university is the future of the country, it must be portrayed in every student of any thought and social extraction. The reality of Colombia is the fundamental objective, not only as a present that determines a particular form of teaching, but as an end, that is, as the point of arrival of the education of mind and spirit. In the year 1958 a university reform is erected in order to update and fulfill the aspirations and slogans of the university in Colombia. Bilateral universities commit themselves to the country, just as the State declares the contributions of all kinds that it has to provide to higher education institutions. The universities then take a decisive role in the progress of the country, since they are autonomous and independent and have as responsibility, the future of Colombia. It is a way of returning the country to unity, leaving aside bipartisanship and national disintegration. Then a model of university that leaves the student and is created in him. It is a time of changes and reforms that result in a solid University of America and advancing towards its educational and social goals.
