  • Our Commitment

    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.

    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.

     IAU - HESD Cluster - SDGs

    Higher education (HE) plays a key role in achieving the 2030 Development Agenda and related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Leaders of universities and other higher education institutions, academic and administrative staff, students and other HE stakeholders are driving the processes towards a more sustainable present and future. The Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development (HESD) global portal is a tool developed by the International Association of Universities; it provides access to actions and initiatives developed around the world to promote sustainability. Make sure you are part of it!


    Our leadership: SDG2 - End Hunger: How to build an international team that reaches the goal? Preliminary Experiences  

    UAN IAUHESDClusterIn June 2018 our President formally embraced the IAU Global Cluster on HESD initiative. The University leads the work related to SDG2 – “End Hunger”. That was a clear motivation for the academic community to get on board as they also see the relevance of the SDGs for Colombia and for the world. SDG2 allows for the contribution and the collaboration of at least half of our Faculties in Sciences, Health, Industrial, Electronics, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Sciences, and Arts. To contribute and guide the impact of research results on the SDG´s, The Science, Technology and Innovation Vice-presidency, included this program in the Annual Internal Research Call for Project Funding for 2019. The call includes a special track to submit proposals related to SDG2 and SDG6 with participation from International (IAU), national and regional and internal research groups. The community impact of work linked to the SDGs are accounted for in the proposal evaluation.

    The accepted projects will start in August 2019. In order to develop the full action plan to address the challenge identified as part of SDG 2, different national and international actors are invited on board. UAN seeks to connect with various actors, at the national and international level, interested in contributing to SDG 2 and expanding their networks of cooperation in SDG research and practice. We aim to generate knowledge through networking and will use diverse mechanisms to connect and communicate. We wish to contribute at the local level and offer inputs to those initiatives addressing the 2030 development agenda at the international and global levels. The invitation to those who wish to participate is open.

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