Carrera 49, Medellin, Colombia
EAFIT is a university that inspires the current generations to embark on a life project that maximizes their potential. It is an institution that both conveys and generates knowledge, thus fulfilling its role as a teaching and research university. It transforms society. Research-backed teaching is another focal point of the institution’s road map, in so far as the goal is to not only convey but also generate knowledge. In that regard, the budget allocated to this area has increased over time and enabled EAFIT to achieve a range of objectives, including recognition by Colciencias of 38 research groups, the registration of 13 patents, and the participation of more than 900 students in research incubators. Another of the university’s main objectives is to extend its national and international reach and impact. In that regard, it offers students the chance to participate in exchange programs abroad that enhance their academic and cultural development. Likewise, it provides educational opportunities to foreigners and students from other Colombian cities who wish to study in Medellín. And EAFIT is culture. Various artistic manifestations, such as music, literature, dance, theater, film cycles, and exhibitions, make up a cultural agenda that permeates all parts of the campus, enables the formation of groups with shared interests, and fosters the organization’s reach and impact both internally and externally. EAFIT’s Mission is to contribute to the country’s progress, a commitment seen on various fronts, including the launch of consulting and entrepreneurship initiatives. And it is in this context, in which the university strives to give back all it has received from society, that its social responsibility efforts are infused with a greater sense of purpose. With these strategic commitments in mind, EAFIT inspires, creates, transforms.
