It`s a pleasure for me to welcome you to our web page.

The graduate fields we offer respond to the local and regional market needs, its design is given basically by two aspects:a) The continuous work with private and government institutions which have kindly shared their immediate professional requirements.
b) The student and educational demand.
This way we see as a priority to respond to high school students with unique options for their professional and personal development.
All without leaving aside the guidelines suggested by the Secretaria de Educación, Cultura y Deporte (SECyD) and their Departments who oversee our professional work.
The Claustro Universitario de Chihuahua has achieved significant academic exchange with organizations that provide and / or request the respective services in an interesting mutually beneficial partnership that strengthens the theoretical and practical aspects seen in classrooms. The qualitative growth has been strengthened in the school. Each time with more regularity, we count with teachers and experts from various disciplines, together with the interest and concerns of students, who form a constantly evolving collective academic and professional interaction. It is also a meeting of cultural processes that seek nurturing the spirit of our student community.
Among other activities, each year we celebrate a cultural week. Where many and diverse speakers analyze the current regional, national and worldwide issues.
Besides, we give workshops, exhibitions (photography, painting); theatrical and musical activities. That’s why today I share with you the pride of belonging to this great educational option in the beautiful state of Chihuahua.

SAPERE AUDE: The expression is a Latinism probably brought in by Horace in a letter to his friend Lolius which relates the various solutions that Ulysses gave when faced the adversity in his return to Troy. It can be seen as the ability of the person to «Dare to know, meet and think». It can also be appreciated in the letter an emphasis on the courage to use the ability to reason. Subsequently, the sentence was used as the slogan of the enlightenment period.
Other main elements that support our academic, investigative and managerial work are added to our Core, those are:
LIBERTY: to express the knowledge and proposals linked to the solidarity to mankind.
TRUTH: As value that rules human relationships among the members of the Institution
JUSTICE: As human category represented in the law, in the citizen´s fundamentalrights, the life, physical integrity and respect for the collective.
