The philosophy that inspired the founding of the University of Lima is oriented toward the pursuit of scientific truth and the preparation of highly trained professionals with humanistic culture and criteria for continuous updating and improvement. One of our priorities is to train students in ethical standards and democratic principles.

The increasingly intense advance in science and technology represents a constant challenge for any university; therefore, it is necessary to give adequate responses by dedicating significant resources to teaching and research. Both, teaching and research must be supported by the most modern laboratories and equipment.

The vocation for service of the University of Lima urges the institution to build leaders with a comprehensive vision, committed to the country and willing to decisively contribute to the progress and development of Peruvian society.
