Universidad Católica de Temuco
Temuco, Chile


University description (as per official university website)

The Catholic University of Temuco, was founded on September 8, 1959, by the then Bishop of the Diocese Bishop Alejandro Menchaca Lira, becoming the first institution of higher education created in the Araucanía Region. His academic activities began with the so-called "University Courses", the first half of 1960, with the advice and support from the Catholic University of Chile.

In the late sixties and early seventies, as part of the discussion of the "University Reform" at the national level, it generates the concept of "regional headquarters", formalized in 1972 by H. Superior Council of the Catholic University. With this new relationship management, the Regional Headquarters of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, U. Católica de Temuco consolidates its academic offerings in the careers of Education, positioning itself as the great institution to prepare teachers for the area south of the country.

Menchaca Lira In the early nineties, along with other regional offices of the Pontifical Catholic University, began the quest for autonomy process which culminates on July 10, 1991, date on which formalizes the creation of the Catholic University Temuco and autonomous university, under the Council of Presidents.

As an autonomous university, the U. Católica de Temuco continues to diversify its educational offerings by creating new programs. Currently in a period of consolidation and academic institutions. In the academic year 2005 has about 5,000 students, 25 runs, 7 graduates, 9 postgraduate students and 3 Masters. It also has centers and institutes devoted to interdisciplinary work on regional issues.

Menchaca LiraLa Araucanía Region IX is located in the south-central Chile. Has special natural attractions such as volcanoes, lakes, native vegetation, wetlands and rich biodiversity. Has a particular social and cultural settings caused by the presence of indigenous Mapuche Chilean and foreign settlers. So then, the current Araucanía Region is comprised of a multiethnic and multicultural population, aspects to be considered in the issues addressed by the U. Catholic.

The Araucanía Region is a land of contrasts and great natural wealth. Productive activities with the greatest potential are tourism, livestock, aquaculture and agribusiness, which are present challenges into opportunities for university work.

In regard to university status, it can be noted that the region, particularly the city of Temuco, has now become an important center of higher education in the south, with a student population of more than twenty thousand students due to the presence of public and private universities to increase.

To changes in lifestyles and culture in today's world, educational institutions and universities in particular have an important role to play as trainers of professionals with opportunities to generate and apply knowledge to address the needs of the environment and enhancing social development with equity.
