    The Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP, by its Spanish acronym) defines itself as a plural and tolerant academic community, based on ethical, democratic and Catholic principles. Our essential foundations are based on academic rigor, a plurality of scientific and humanistic perspectives, Catholic values and ethical principles, a culture of discrepancy and tolerance, and a commitment with the development of Peru and its people.

    Consequently, our model seeks to serve the country and the world through our students’ comprehensive training, the development of knowledge and our commitment with society.

    Hence, PUCP offers a humanistic, scientific and moral education. This stress on imparting comprehensive and civic education to our students is part of our university’s tradition. Therefore, we look for our students to entirely grow their intellectual, critical, reflective, artistic, spiritual and physical capacities.

    As a result, in 2014 the Instituto Internacional para el Aseguramiento de la Calidad (IAC, by its Spanish acronym) recognized our institutional and academic standards and, after a long process that began in 2008, awarded us with a five year-long International Accreditation in categories of Institutional Management and Undergraduate Studies, and Research and Graduate Teaching.

    This recognition consolidates the purpose of the President’s team: to become a distinguished University, with international standards and committed with our country, that is recognized as the main multidisciplinary center for scientific, humanistic and innovation due to its important academic leadership, due to its defense of democracy and human rights, and for encouraging a responsible relationship with the environment. All of these characteristics, in accordance with the Christian values that inspire us.

    This purpose will only be attainable with a collaborative work among students, professors, employees and alumni. We all should work together to maintain firmly the university model that we have built: a space where reason merges faith in a constructive manner, and serves Christian and Catholic values, human development and development in our country.
