Welcome to the Ana G. Méndez University System. Please feel free to browse through our website in order to become better acquainted with our tradition of excellence in education over the past 60 years.

Reaching out to our students and community with the best services and resources has always been our primary goal. In these pages you will find information on the breadth and scope of our institutions, the diversity of academic, technological and community projects we are developing, as well as our plans for the future. Here you will find a college community made up of a faculty that is dedicated to teaching and research work; a group of associates committed to offering the best service they can provide, and highly talented st

Being president of the University System Ana G. Mendez (SUAGM) is a great responsibility that I took in 1974. Since then, I had the firm intention to transform and make this school a body of constant innovation.

I am proud our mission: to achieve excellence in university education accessible to everyone in the country, mainly to students from low income families. We therefore reaffirm the "education as a vehicle for improvement'', as said our founder, Ana G. Mendez. Even today, his legacy is our north. My mother said, "Our institution is inspired by love, love of country, youth, education, family and especially God."

My greatest satisfaction is knowing that the SUAGM has contributed to Puerto Rican society through the education they have received thousands of students in our institutions: the University of East Metropolitan University, the University of Turabo, University Ana G. Mendez - Virtual Campus and universities in Florida and Maryland.

With great satisfaction I put all my efforts to make the SUAGM, an institution that is ahead of the times. The Public Policy Institute, the Office of Regional Alliances, studies of bilingual education, internationalization, the Arecibo Observatory and the Institute of Public Security and Protection (ISEP), are some of the initiatives that best reflect our effectiveness and performance as an advanced educational institution.

We continue with our commitment to educate and prepare professionals now and in the future to contribute to the welfare of Puerto Rico.
