  University of Puerto Rica
Puerto Rico, a colony of Spain for more than 400 hundred years, was by the time of the Spanish-American War a country where Spanish was the vernacular.
As it relates to the University of Puerto Rico the widespread support for the use of Spanish as the language of instruction resulted in the 1942 resolution by the Superior Educational Council establishing that instruction at the UPR should be offered preferably in Spanish.
The part played by the UPR in the teaching of English in Puerto Rico was described by Dr. Juan José Osuna, at the time Dean of the UPR School of Education, in a 1942 report covering the language policies during the previous twenty years.
