Veritas University

Introduction

In 1968 there were only four state universities in Costa Rica; there was a misconception that the State was the only responsible for higher education. This is why when the Technical Institute of Business Administration (ITAN in Spanish) was founded this same year, it created a large turmoil that originated a general strike at the University of Costa Rica.

By 1976 VERITAS Collegium was born, as one of the four founding colleges of the first private university in Costa Rica: the Autonomous University of Central America (UACA). In 1994, the Collegium VERITAS and ITAN merged to become a new autonomous university under the name of VERITAS University.

With time and following the trends of evolution of Central American society, VERITAS University became an art, design and architecture specialized institution, with the possibility of entering any area related with these fields.

VERITAS University is considered to be the best university in its areas of specialty. Its strategic pillars are excellence, technology and innovation; sustainability, social projection and internationalization. You can learn more about VERITAS in the Institutional Philosophy section.
