Outreach at UdeA

Posted May 4, 2018

University outreach is one of the three missions related to the functions of the university. It articulates teaching and research and promotes reciprocal relations with society.

Thanks to the interaction with its surroundings and the dialogue of knowledge that originates in the encounter between the university and the different social sectors, it is possible to connect the production of knowledge with the real needs of society. This allows us to articulate inter-institutional capacities to diversify learning environments, innovate curricula to offer relevant academic programs and solve the most pressing problems of the region successfully and collaboratively. Thus, social appropriation of knowledge, territorial development, organizational development and a better quality of life for communities are favored based on four major institutional commitments: social interaction, management of innovation, management of culture and heritage, and the mutually beneficial relationship with the university's graduates.

Universidad de Antioquia’s Outreach Vice President's Office is the administrative body through which policies are proposed and where outreach at the university is oriented, coordinated, motivated, promoted and supported.
