The UNESCO International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (IESALC) was created by the UNESCO General Conference in 1997, replacing the Regional Center for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (CRESALC for its Spanish abbreviation) established in 1974. It is the sole specialized institute of the United Nations system with the mission to contribute to the improvement of higher education in member States.

The core mission of the Institute is to collaborate with and contribute to the development of national higher education systems and institutions in member States, to ensure their sustained relevance, quality, efficiency and equity by promoting regional and international cooperation and the participation of all actors involved

One of the main objectives of the Institute is to promote the right to quality higher education which is relevant, inclusive and equitable for all, by creating awareness in this regard among higher education agents and public opinion in general.
