“Forming people, transforming the country” is the slogan of the Universidad de Santiago. The University has been historically focused on the formation of professionals who can respond to Chile´s challenges. This challenge is not a trivial one. Contrasting with other higher education institutions, the University has assumed the tension of the developing economies and it receives talented students, who come mainly from vulnerable contexts, and transforms them into agents of change.

Hundreds of generations have been part of this University project that today consolidates, after reducing the socioeconomic differences without leaving aside the excellence frameworks.
