USIL Office
of the Vice President of Research

Our objective is to promote and generate knowledge for the economic and social development of the country, through high-quality research. 

Welcome to the Office of the Vice President of Research


We are committed to inclusive and sustainable national development through an education that prioritizes research and technological innovation in the different fields of knowledge and their transfer to society. 
In each country in which we operate, we promote in-depth knowledge of local characteristics, a sense of belonging, pride in one's own culture, and the efficient management of resources. This fosters the formation of citizens committed to local development, who have a broad perspective and ample knowledge of their country.
