The National University of Avellaneda, Argentina was founded as a result of a debate on university planning and the virtue of historical precedents that refer to the cultural and educational wealth of the city of Avellaneda. Its main established objectives are the formation of people of high ethical, political and professional quality, as well as the generation and adaptation of knowledge, the conservation and the reinterpretation of culture and the active, leading participation in the process of change in the quality of life of the community.

The University represents, therefore, a new form of educational excellence that guides its institutional and training mission, in virtue of the project from which it was originated and that maintains its basic democratic principles, offering critical reflection through interdisciplinary work and the relationship with it community. It links the local reality to the national academic field, seeking to answer to the demands of a better society.

As a means of achieving these objective objectives, UNDAV has six departments that articulate, in different areas, possible solutions to each of the problems that may be presented in the community:

  • Department of Humanities and Arts

  • Department of Environment and Tourism.

  • Department of Health and Physical Activity

  • Department of Technology and Administration
