The National University of General San Martín (Spanish: Universidad Nacional de General San Martín, UNSAM) is an Argentine public national university principally located in the city of San Martín, Buenos Aires Province.
The creation of The National University of General San Martin was enabled by two trends: the first, following a tendency initiated in the 1970s, decentralization of the largest universities in Argentina; and the second, following the desire of the local community of San Martin to establish a university in its own territory. This TENSION forged the initial identity of the institution, promoting the capacities and meeting the local demands, and responding to the vacant ares in the Argentinian university system. The first academic activities of undergraduate and postgraduate students begain in 1994.
The university has as its aim and standard the following concepts and ideals: academic liberty and respect for the diversity of thought; team spirit for the continual improvement of the institution; social responsibility and service vocation; efficiency and transparency in management; and respect for other's work and respect for the work environment.
"'Campus Miguelete'" is the grounds of UNSAM and occupies a space of 8.5 hectares, with 48,000 square meters of the surface constructed in the year 2013 and a total plan that reaches 220,000 square meters.
The Instituto Sabato is a branch of this university.
