The Abat Oliba CEU University was founded in 2003 in Barcelona. It is an institution based on the ideals of the Asociación Católica de Propagandistas (Catholic Propagandistic Association). The core principle in all its initiatives is its vocation of service towards the Catalan society, which follows the Christian spirit and, thus, the inviolable dignity of human life.
UAO CEU’s educational frame in terms of knowledge transmission offers excellent academic training in the classroom. The focus is put on reality, on the society where students will develop professionally. The academic community as a whole gets involved in achieving this goal.
For this reason, UAO CEU promotes among its students an ethical commitment to society, especially with the defenceless or disadvantaged. We believe in “University as a place of training in solidarity” (Pope Francis). Every member of the university community at UAO CEU has to be aware that excellence in training and research is but a call to responsibility and a determined attitude in favour of others..
