Research

Research Area

In the knowledge society, research is one of the foundations of university education (Wainerman & Sautu, 2004). Within this global context, the University of San Isidro has defined two basic criteria which are mutually related. Firstly, our priority consists of the formative research (Restrepo Gómez, 2003) understood as the formation of a staff and university community which is willing and eager to investigate.

For such purpose, the Vice Chancellor of Research works jointly with the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs in order to articulate strategies and actions with the degree programs. Accordingly, three of the four directors of our degree programs (Law, Social Communication and Education) are performing research projects with the purpose of including other professors and advanced students in their research teams. Secondly, we give priority to investigations which have a significant social impact in the Northern Area of the Province of Buenos Aires.
