  2. 2. Instituto Universitario del Gran RosarioHistoryThe Fundación del Gran Rosario, began operating in 2000, for the purposes ofdeepening the work on academic training, drafting of projects and proposalsaimed at encouraging the cultural, scientific and technological development ofRosario and its surrounding areas.As from inception, it promotes Higher Education activities seeking academicexcellence and sustainable regional development, mainly in areas of knowledgestill lacking in this region, such as Rehabilitation and Movement Sciences.Thus, the Foundation implemented graduate and postgraduate courses under anAcademic Agreement with the Universidad Nacional de San Martin. Such experi-ence constituted a strength that led the Foundation to create the InstitutoUniversitario del Gran Rosario (IUGR), which entity is operating on a self-governingbasis since 2006. 4
  3. 3. Instituto Universitario del Gran RosarioCreationThe Instituto Universitario del Gran Rosario (IUGR) is a higher education institution,operating on a self-governing basis as to academic and institutional matters,engaged in Health Sciences, specially developing Rehabilitation and MovementSciences, a discipline still lacking in this region.Provisionally authorized by the Argentine Government in 2006, the IUGR beganoperating in 2008, with graduate and postgraduate courses, subject to strictevaluation by the Argentine Commission of University Evaluation andAccreditation [Comisión Nacional de Evaluación y Acreditación Universitaria](CONEAU).The IUGRs foundational purpose is to be an institution with academic excellence soas to become a referent for the city of Rosario and its surrounding area. For suchpurpose, it counts on a faculty consisting of teachers and professors with a relevantacademic and professional career, and it also encourages research activities andlinks to society.The IUGRs main mission is to train professionals working on an interdisciplinarybasis both in clinic and care for the patient, boosting and prioritizing peoplesabilities, taking individuals as an integral being in constant social interaction.The broad pre-professional practice system the IUGR has managed to draw upconstitutes an essential pillar for the training of such professionals. Through theHealth Care Teaching Units [Unidades Docentes Asistenciales], located both inpublic and private health institutions of the city of Rosario and its surroundingarea, students from all courses of studies, conduct their pre-professional practice,under their teachers constant supervision. Since 2011, this practice system isavailable to students from other countries through the Pre-professional PracticeInternational Program.Another fundamental element in this training process, is the academic exchangewith renowned universities in the areas of rehabilitation and movement. In thisrespect, the IUGR encourages the creation of cooperation links to institutions in 5

Instituto Universitario del Gran Rosarioour country and from abroad, in order to foster the ongoing improvement ofacademic quality, as well as encouraging the exchange of students, teachers andresearchers.Simultaneously, the IUGR is actively engaged in the attention of persons withdisabilities, by developing initiatives aimed at improving their quality of life andpromoting equal opportunities, mainly in the labor area. An example of thiscommitment is the recently created Inclusive Rosario University Center (CURI)[Centro Universitario Rosario Inclusiva], exclusively intended to support andencourage this type of activities. 6
