Summary: President Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera and the Secretary of War, Joaquín Barriga, here publish the statutes that regulate university instruction in Nueva Granada. It includes administrative regulations as well as academic guidelines for each discipline.
Historical Notes: After the Colombian independence in 1819, the government began to consider creating public universities. Francisco de Paula Santander established the Universidad Central de la República in 1830. However, graduate education was monopolized by the church or political and economic elites with the establishment of federal, radical local and national governments. Private education replaced the public university until 1867 when Universidad Nacional was created. Colombia, Universidad Nacional de 2014 Reseña Histórica. Bogotá: Universidad Nacional.
