The National University of La Plata, founded in 1905 by Dr. Joaquín Víctor González, arises from the confluence of two fundamental concepts. On the one hand, the traditional interpretation of the term "University", as a natural field of knowledge. On the other hand, the updated idea of experimental, social and artistic scientific knowledge in its different expressions.

With more than a century of experience, it continues to be a pioneer in advanced cultural, artistic and scientific studies and developments. This has given it the prestige that places it among the main ones in the country, the American continent and the world. Teaching, research and extension make up the basic pillars of this University.
