This History of the National University of Jujuy tries to reflect the years of work, perseverance, and effort of the men and women who integrated it and currently integrate it. That is why we intend to showcase its main achievements from the various institutions that comprise it. Far from a triumphalist ideal -or from History as progress- it is necessary to understand that, from its creation in 1972 to the present, our university went through a period of our history marked by debacles and crises of all kinds and that, at times, was particularly hard on public education. It is in this framework - in which planning and executing a long-term development has been a great challenge - is where the members of this institution managed to build, consolidate and expand our university. That is why this History of the National University of Jujuy is dedicated to them.
