Purpose Statement

 

Research at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez represents a central core of the institution.  Through the investigatory work developed at the UAI, our university seeks to contribute to expanding the frontiers of knowledge in diverse areas at the national and international levels.

The reason why we generate this knowledge in the different areas and fields supported by our university is found in our students and our community.  The research at the UAI is transferred to these groups, and contributes to academic growth and the development of society in public spheres.  In this way, research at the UAI is valued not only due to the productive capabilities of its researchers, but also because of its social and educational impact.

In developing this work, our academics lead the way.  These men and women, in addition to distinguishing themselves by the quality preparation of their students, possess the tenacity and personal characteristics necessary for carrying out the most diverse types of research.  This research and its results nourish a scientific duty to the needs of our country and the world.

The investigative work done at the UAI is indeed diverse, not just in the areas tackled or level of development that mirrors that of the university; that said, all UAI research follows UAI values.  This moral character and consistency throughout the university promotes the principles of liberty and responsibility.
