Pontifical Catholic University of Peru

Pontifical Catholic University of Peru is a private university in Lima, Peru. It was founded in 1917 by Catholic priest Father Jorge Dintilhac SS.CC as Perus first non-profit private institution of higher learning. Academically, PUCP ranks alternatively as first.

In July 2012, after an Apostolic Visitation, begun earlier, in 2011, by Cardinal Peter Erdo, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest, Hungary, the Holy See withdrew from the university the right under canon law to use the titles Catholic and Pontifical in its name, but it was not possible because the legitimate law was the Peruvian Law.However, on Monday, April 28, 2014, the Rector of the University stated that, The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has formed a Commission of Cardinals with the mission of meeting to find a final, consensual solution, in the framework of the Apostolic Constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae, (From the Heart of the Church) to the outstanding issues between the Vatican and the University. Besides Cardinal Erdo, the other two Cardinal Members of the Commission will be Cardinal Gerald Cyprien Lacroix, Archbishop of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, and Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati Andrello, Archbishop of Santiago de Chile, Chile.
