University of San Andres. It is a private Argentine university with definitive official authorization. It is proposed to constitute an academic community of professors, students and graduates committed to the search for the truth and to contribute to the progress of Argentina and the well-being of its inhabitants.
Historically, the Presbyterian Church, which emerged in 1560 from the Protestant Reformation in Scotland, held that every village should have a church and college. The conviction was that both, church and school, would allow the community to have access to the reading of the Bible, improve their social situation and found the country in which they were based on values that arose from biblical principles. With this conviction the first universities (Glasgow and St. Andrew) were founded, which by the middle of the 18th century were the instrument of the renewal and growth of the country.
The first Scottish settlers arrived in Argentina in 1825 and already in 1838 and, following the tradition of origin, they founded the Escuela Escocesa San Andrés.
The operating modality of the San Andrés cloister has spread in Argentina together with the growing recognition of society towards UDESA as an exemplary institution, possessing a unique educational model in the country.
The San Andrés Church (1829), the San Andrés School (1838) and the San Andrés University (1988), are the product of the spirit of mission developed by those men and women in Argentina and by all those who – without being Scottish or Presbyterian –committed and remain committed to their educational vision and the values that support it.
The University of San Andrés proposes to constitute an academic community of professors, students and graduates committed to the search for the truth and to contribute to the progress of Argentina and the well-being of its inhabitants.
Within a framework of adherence to the social and moral values bequeathed by its founders, it strives to transmit established knowledge, create new knowledge, promote education in general and strengthen institutions.
Its objective is to make the education it provides available to all those people who have intellectual aptitudes, a vocation for service and dedication to study, beyond their economic resources.
Social and moral values of the institution
The values of the founders of St. Andrew’s Scottish School, established in 1838, and St. Andrew’s University, in 1989, are based on the Presbyterian heritage based on the Holy Scriptures.
In this framework, the University of San Andrés promotes debate aimed at the free and honest search for the truth, without proselytizing intentions. It has no religious purposes: it considers the religious dimension to be an integral part of human culture and worthy, like all aspects of that culture, of investigation and discussion.
It aspires that its members assume leadership at the service of the community and the country, that they are characterized by having an open and inquisitive mind, that they are supportive of all members of society, and that they exhibit moral integrity, a conciliatory spirit and respect for the diversity.
