Universidad Católica del Uruguay
Installed in Montevideo and several cities in the interior of the country, the Universidad Católica de Uruguay (UCU) is the oldest private university in the country and the most geographically widespread.
From its birth, the UCU set itself the challenge of being a different option in university education. This led to the need to work in previously neglected areas and play an innovative role in the development of new educational methods and in the evangelization of culture. Today, with eight thousand students in its classrooms and several dozen academic programs underway, it is undergoing a period of consolidation and faces the challenge of responding to the new requirements of Uruguayan society.
