Institutional projects

  • Antonio Nariño University attempts to reach its goals by establishing mechanism such as our Institutional Development Plan (IDP) 2017 - 2021. It includes clear references to sustainable development, embracing its purpose to prepare students for an inclusive and sustainable society. UAN recognizes the challenges to build a nation in peace, with a growing and sustainable economy, with an efficient use of its own resources through taking care of its public service expenses and monitoring of the environmental impact of its facilities. UAN is looking forward to creating a culture of sustainability and environmental concerns in the communities where it develops its functions.

    By nature, UAN is a diverse university where faculties evolve in different ways. The Civil and Environmental Engineering Faculty was the first academic entity to embrace the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by integrating its principles in its curricula and syllabi. Today, students in the second half of their career complement their learning process by addressing challenges proposed by professors. SDG6 and SDG2 are closely related to the Faculty. Faculty also suggest that all students enrolled for an elective course in SDGs.

    End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

    Students are the citizens that will manage private and public organizations in the future. Thus, we expect they act in a more sensitive manner and make more accurate decisions with positive impacts for human kind and the planet. The challenge we face is how to motivate others to adopt and integrate these experiences and practices in their activities. Initially, in 2018, we created a SDG task force, which included our President, Deans, Vice-presidents, the Internationalization Officer and the Planning Officer.

    This collaborative and participative work dynamics for the development of strategic projects in the University has been coordinated by the UAN Internationalization Laboratory (UAN INT-LAB). In fact, the connection between internationalization and SDGs is one of the topics we are most interested in developing.

    We believe in the future, and we believe in our students. We believe in collaboration, in adoption and in sharing and scaling up project outcomes and good practices; this will result in progress. We believe in international, interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches. We believe in a better world. We hope to End Hunger.
