Programa de Desarrollo Integral

Comprehensive Development Program (CDP 2016-2020)

This is the fourth Comprehensive Development Program –CDP- written by the Universidad de los Andes. It is enormously important for us, not only because it has helped us to devise a new ¨roadmap¨, but also because, in some way, it has made us speak a common language and work with a particular focus. It is fundamentally a synthesis of a large variety of contributions and many suggestions.

University Mission

"The Universidad de los Andes is an autonomous institution that is independent and innovative. It encourages pluralism, tolerance, and the respect for ideas. It strives for academic excellence and gives its students a critical and ethical education that will solidify in them an awareness of their social and civil responsibilities as well as a commitment to their country.

It has students who, within an environment that promotes comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and flexible teaching are the principal agent in their own education. This allows the teaching staff, who are highly qualified, to develop an academic life project and become outstanding professionals, which means producing research that contributes to the country’s development and its international projection."
