The institute was named after two well-known Colombian linguists, Miguel Antonio Caro Tobar and Rufino José Cuervo Urisarri.

The Institute was created by order of the Colombian government in 1942. Its first assignment was the creation of the Spanish language dictionary, Diccionario de Construcción y Régimen de la Lengua Castellana.

Caro y Cuervo has been recognised and awarded several times, receiving important prizes such as the Prince of Asturias Awards and the Bartolomé de las Casas Prize.
