image by Ivan Sache, 28 July 2014

Universidad de Nariño is the descendant of a college founded in 1712 by the Jesuits in San Juan de Pasto, to teach Latin, Spanish and Religious History; the college was closed in 1767 when King Charles III decreed the expelling of the Jesuits from America. The college reemerged in 1791 as Real Colegio Seminario, transformed in 1822 into a military camp, PAsto supporting at the time the Royalists. In 1827, the President of the Republic, General Francisco de Paula de Santander, decreed the founding of the Colegio Provincial; this was considered as a gesture of reconciliation between the town and the power. The college was renamed Colegio San Augustin in 1832, as a tribute to the Augustinian monks that funded it. Colegio San Augustin is considered as the true forerunner of the today's university. Renamed Colegio Académico in the 1850s, the college was made a university by Presidential Decree No 726 of 11 September 1889, confirmed in 1894 by Decree No. 30 of the Assembly of the Department of Cauca. The university was transferred to the newly created Department of Nariño in 1904.
