More about Pontifical Catholic University of Peru

The Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, founded in Lima in 1917, aims to promote democratic values, human rights and human development, and the responsible use of natural resources and of the environment, all in conjunction with the Christian principles that serve as its inspiration. This is made possible by the combined efforts of students, professors, general staff and graduates, as we hold firm to the university model we have achieved – one in which there is a constructive dialogue between reason and faith, and which is at the service of Christian and Catholic values, as well as human development and our nation’s progress. The university’s desire to continue on its course of excellence, both in teaching as well as research, is reflected by the creation of the position of vice-president for research. We promote greater communication and coordination of academic efforts between sciences and engineering and the humanities and social sciences through inter- and multi-disciplinary projects.
