University of the Andes
The University of the Andes (Universidad de los Andes, also commonly self-styled as Uniandes) is a private research university located in the city centre of Bogotá, Colombia.
The University of the Andes (Uniandes) was founded in 1948 by a group of Colombian intellectuals led by Mario Laserna Pinzón. It was the first Colombian university established as nonsectarian (independent from any political party or religious institution). Laserna and the other founders envisioned Uniandes as a center for academic excellence, research, and social responsibility.
Uniandes quickly began to make a name for itself as one of the leading universities in Colombia. In 1964, the Colombian government granted it University status. In the following decades, Uniandes expanded its academic offerings and research capabilities. It also established a strong reputation for its commitment to social responsibility.
Uniandes has played a significant role in the development of Colombia. Its graduates have gone on to become leaders in government, business, and academia. Uniandes is also a major driver of innovation and economic growth in the country.
Today, the University of the Andes is a leading research university with a global reputation for excellence. It is committed to educating the next generation of leaders and scholars, and to using its knowledge and resources to make a positive impact on the world.
University of the Andes is ranked as the #1 top university in Colombia during 2023. This is the same rank as last year.
