The Faculty of Government of the Central University of Chile is one of the faculties that make up the Central University of Chile, founded in 1982. It originated as a Public Administration career, starting its academic activities in March 1983 on Campus "La Perla", in the commune of San Bernardo, Chile. From 1988, it was referred to as the School of Political and Administrative Sciences and moved to North Campus Almagro in Santiago, next to the Almagro Park. In 2000, the Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration was created. In 2003, the Political Science Career study plan was created, and in 2004 the campus moved to its current premises, sharing the Vicente Kovacevic II building with the Faculty of Education.[1][2]

In 2017, by decision of the Faculty Council, it was decided to change the name to Faculty of Government.

In 2019, by decision of the Rectory, under a plan of administrative reorganization of the academic units, it was agreed to merge the former Faculty of Government with the Faculty of Communications and the Faculty of Economics and Business, thereby creating the current faculty.[3]
