Mission

The Faculty shares the mission of the Javeriana University:

“In the immediate future, the Javeriana University will drive research and integrated education based on curricula offered by its faculties; it will strengthen its role as an interdisciplinary university; and it will invigorate its presence in the country, making key contributions to find solutions for the following problems:

· The ethical crisis and the treatment of humans as mere instruments.
· The low appreciation of national values and the lack of appropriation of cultural identities.
· Intolerance and ignorance of plurality and diversity.
· Social discrimination and the concentration of economic and political power.
· The inefficiency and poor infrastructure of the state’s principal institutions.
· Deficiencies and slowness in scientific and technological development.
· Irrational practices and illogical thinking in the management of environmental and natural resources.
