Universidad Metropolitana
« Home « UNIVERSITIES « Universidad Metropolitana

It was established originally as a satellite campus of the former Puerto Rico Junior College (1969).  In 1980 it became an autonomous institution known as the Metropolitan College (Colegio Universitario Metropolitano [CUM]), and in 1985 was authorized to change its name to Metropolitan University (Universidad Metropolitana [UMET]).  Its first graduate programs in Educations and Business Administration began in 1988.

By the end of the 1980’s the institution revised its mission statement to focus on environmental studies and issues as an institutional specialty.  The Institute of Environmental Education (Instituto de Educación Ambiental [INEDA]) was created in 1990; and three years later (1993), the Caribbean Environmental Information Center (Centro de Información Ambiental del Caribe [CIAC]) was born.

By the mid 1990’s, a need was identified to provide educational services to non-traditional populations, as well as adults.  As such, UMET created the School of Professional Technical Certificates (Escuela de Certificados Técnicos Profesionales); the School of Professional Studies (Escuela de Estudios Profesionales - Ahora Program); and also began to use Distance Learning and Interactive Television as educational strategies.  In 1995 the National Science Foundation (NSF) recognized UMET, amongst 10 U.S. institutions and the only one in Puerto Rico, as a Model Institution of Excellence in the field of Science.
