"The School of Salamanca takes its name from the University of Salamanca, which, for its part, lays claim to the very foundations of higher education in Spanish. Known as the 'alma mater' of Ibero-American universities and the 'dean' of Spanish universities, the University of Salamanca was chartered by King Alfonso IX in the year 1218. It has played a key role in the development of academic studies and scientific progress in Western Civilization, becoming a place of debate and reflection on such important issues as the nature of political power, international law, economics, and human rights. Today, USAL is best known as a reference point for the theory and practice of Spanish language instruction."
