Universidad Autonoma Nacional de Mexico


The National Autonomous University of Mexico has played a leading role in the history and formation of our country. The substantive tasks of this public, autonomous and secular institution are teaching, research and dissemination of culture. In the academic world it is recognized as a university of excellence. The UNAM responds to the present and looks to the future as the most important cultural project in Mexico. The UNAM is a space of freedoms. In it, respect, tolerance and dialogue are practiced on a daily basis. The plurality of ideas and thought is appreciated as a sign of wealth and never as a factor of weakness.




Following the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century, the University was positioned at the forefront of academia and critical thinking. Due to the determination and perseverance of a group of Edinburgh intellectuals, established facts about the world were being boldly and consistently challenged. Amid this group was David Hume, philosopher, economist and essayist known for his philosophical skepticism and empiricism; Joseph Black, the chemist behind the discovery of latent heat and carbon dioxide; and James Hutton, the "Father of Modern Geology".
