Santa Fe, Argentina

Location Description

Located in the Argentinian plains, the city of Santa Fe (with approx. 500,000 inhabitants) combines the customs and landscapes of modern Latin American cities with the traditional idiosyncrasies of Argentinian society. Founded in 1573, the city, historically known as the birthplace of the Argentinian Constitution, has developed into an extremely touristic spot due to its numerous amount of natural attractions, museums, and monuments.

University Profile

Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL) was founded in 1919 as a response to the national reform movement that took over Argentina’s universities the previous year and, as such, still holds similar values as part of its academic tradition. These values have help the university cement itself as one of the most important institutions in the country and gain popularity with both the regional government and people of Santa Fe.

Historically, the university has been the background for many important events in the history of Argentina, including twice being the venue for the constitutional convention (in 1957 and again in 1994).
