The Universidad Católica de Córdoba (UCC) is a Jesuit university in Argentina that was founded on June 8, 1956, immediately after private universities were authorized.
UCC is part of the worldwide network of Jesuit universities in over 90 countries, and a member of Jesuit Universities of Latin America (AUSJAL). Its mutual cooperation includes academic exchange agreements and joint degree programs. It has three campuses with over 10,000 students in its eleven faculties and one institute. All graduate programs are accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation of Universities (CONEAU). Doctorates are conferred in Medicine, Health Sciences, Politics and Government, Agricultural Sciences, Microelectronics, and Chemical Sciences.
UCC offers a liberal education with philosophy, anthropology, ethics, and theology woven into various programs. This includes a strong commitment to be « academically engaged and socially responsible. » In 2006 UCC formally adopted an approach it calls University Social Responsibility (RSU), with not only civic engagement and community outreach activities but also social responsibility stressed in every aspect of the university, including its administration, teaching, and research. Under the RSU program, UCC requires that each faculty submit a list of social responsibility projects that they will undertake in the coming year, independently or in collaboration with other faculties, thus involving faculty and students from across the university. The university further encourages students, teachers, and young professionals to volunteer for community service through its « Volunteers - Universidad Católica de Córdoba » program, working under the motto « We enter to learn, depart to serve. » They apply knowledge in an interdisciplinary way to various social problems, promote social awareness and a sense of solidarity, and acknowledge responsibility for the most vulnerable. The intended outcome is that graduates be not only good professionals but also critical, compassionate, and committed persons in a society increasingly torn by exclusion and injustice.
