Fundación de Estudios Superiores Universitarios de Urabá (FESU) was established in Apartadó (Antioquia Department) by Resolution No. 596 of 2 April 2001. The institute is named for Dr. Antonio Roldán Betancur, one of the founders of EDUCOOP, a cooperative for education in the Urabá region established in 1976. The Urabá region is located around the gulf of the same name, on the border with Panamá.
The flag of FESU is white with the institute's emblem, beneath the writing "Institución Universitaria / FESU" in black letters. The emblem of the institute uses warm colours, representing the regional intense activity, movement, and social dynamics. A sun is placed in the center as the focal point of the emblem; its circular shape refers to infinity and perfection. The sun has always been associated with wealth, splendour and light. The sun is inscribed in a door, which symbolizes the man facing the world and the future. In the background, a second door is framed with classical elements. Ancient Greece and Rome are the origin of democratic knowledge and of academics. That door is the distinctive element of the educational institute. Men and women face the new advance of the university in the world. The blue triangle in the background represents the immensity of the sea and increases the idea of eternity and complexity of the sea; it conveys the idea of port.
