Our History of Ana G. Mendez University System
Ana González de Méndez, together with Alfredo Muñiz Souffront and Florencio Pagán Cruz, founded the Puerto Rico High School of Commerce in Río Piedras. This institution is later renamed Puerto Rico Junior College (PRJC).
On May 1, 1959, the Puerto Rico Junior College was accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
On June 18, 1969, the Puerto Rico Junior College Association assumed a new name, being legally incorporated as: Ana G. Méndez Educational Foundation.
The Doctoral Program in Education was inaugurated throughout the Educational Foundation Ana G. Méndez.
The PRJC campus in Cupey became the Colegio Universitario Metropolitano, which later (1985) was renamed the Universidad Metropolitana (UMET), becoming the second institution of SUAGM to offer Bachelors Degree programs.
The Turabo University College began offering programs at the graduate level, and changed its name to Universidad del Turabo.
The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools accredited the Special Educational Services Program (PROSEE) and received the Program Excellence award from the National University Continuing Education Association in the United States.
On July 15, the Board of Directors approved to amend the legal name of the Ana G. Méndez Educational Foundation, Inc. From that moment it became known as the Ana G. Méndez University System, Inc.
