Welcome to Universidad de Oriente (UNIVO), founded on October 30, 1981, as an alternative of higher studies for the community of the Eastern zone of the country, beginning its academic work on February 3, 1982.
Universidad de Oriente is an institution from the society to the society. It is made up of people who advise, promote and support our pedagogical work by identifying the educational opportunities in the region and providing the necessary resources for its establishment, growth and development.
UNIVO is currently a system with common parameters among which stand out: its culture of responsibility and attachment to work, integrity and honesty, as well as innovation and entrepreneurship. Since its founding, it has fostered in its students the culture of effort as a characteristic of their personal formation, and dedication to study as a premise to guarantee their professional success.
Based on the results of a wide consultation, our institution defined its mission in the following terms: “Universidad de Oriente is an institution of higher education that develops the functions of Teaching, Research and Social Projection, focused on the training of professionals with human sensitivity and sound ethical principles, capable of contributing to the social, economic and cultural development of the national environment.”
This mission is carried out through the 6 Faculties, in which the Educational Model of UNIVO is applied, which includes courses in humanities, ethics and civic responsibility in all curricula; it makes use of didactic techniques that promote the active participation of the student and his collaborative work. In addition, students’ extra-academic activities are significantly valued in order to strengthen their leadership, sense of responsibility and spirit of service.
