Program Director Dr. Manuel Ortuno:



The Universidad Nacional de Cordoba, founded in 1613 by the Jesuits, is the oldest university in Argentina and the fourth oldest in the Americas. The university passed to the national government in 1856 and in 1918 experienced a student-based movement for the democratization of higher education called the Reforma Universitaria that later influenced universities in all of Latin America. The UNC is located in the city of Cordoba (1.3 million inhabitants) and has a student population of approximately 90,000 with 8,000 professors. There are twelve colleges at the UNC: Architecture; Economics; Chemical Sciences; Exact, Physical, and Natural Sciences; Medical Sciences; Law and Social Sciences; Philosophy and Humanities; Psychology; Dentistry; Mathematics, Astronomy, and Physics; Agricultural Sciences; and Languages. The motto of the UNC is "Ut portet nomen meum corem gentibus", which is taken from Acts 9.
