How is Universidad del Pacífico related to the Society of Jesus?
At the beginning of its institutional life, the Society of Jesus undertook on a temporal basis the administrative and academic sections of Universidad del Pacífico; it is thus recognized as one of the university's founders.
Since then, it has continually collaborated and has a voice in the strategic decision-making at Universidad del Pacífico, which is nowadays part of the Association of Latin American Universities entrusted to the Society of Jesus (AUSJAL), composed by twenty-eight universities from fifteen Latin American countries.
The Presence of the Society of Jesus at Universidad del Pacífico
