One of the paramount goals while creating the Universidad Austral de Chile was to find a way to retain the beauty and closeness of nature, while at the same time encourage the acquisition of knowledge. Every walkway and building of the university was planned through group effort, led by Doctor Eduardo Morales, and the final result was well deserving of the University's Motto: "Conocimiento y Naturaleza" (Knowledge and Nature).
