The University was founded by Joaquín Molano Campuzano, Javier Pulgar Vidal and Jaime Forero Valdes at a time of great political commotion in Colombia. Their aim was to create an environment of peaceful engagement in an academic setting, based on the scientific and altruistic principles that characterized the Royal Botanical Expedition to New Granada of which Jorge Tadeo Lozano was a member, in a team of scientists led by Jose Celestino Mutis .

Jorge Tadeo Lozano University is a member of the Association of Colombian Universities (ASCUN),[2] and Universia.

Among the notable architecture features of the school are an auditorium, a fine art gallery, a postgraduate studies building and a public square designed by Colombian architect Daniel Bermúdez.

The University also broadcasts cultural activities and content on Bogotá's FM radio via HJUT 106.9 FM, with Classical Music, Opera, Jazz and Rock programming.
