The Asociación de Universidades Grupo Montevideo [Montevideo Group Association of Universities] (AUGM) is a network of public and autonomous universities from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay, which, due to their similar characteristics in terms of vocation, public, academic structure and types of service, develop cooperation activities.

Founded in 1991 as a response to the challenges in Latin American university management, this group of universities saw the need to work together towards the development of excellence and quality of the public higher education.
