History

Universidad Panamericana begins operations as a preliminary project in 1993 under the direction of the Board of Directors of the Christian Foundation for the Development of Education in Latin America (FUNDACEDE). During that first year, the schedule of activities is established and the first draft called “Draft for the creation of the Christian University of Guatemala” is presented. The first consultation of professionals is made for the presentation of the vision on January 7, 1994 and then we proceed to integrate work commissions for the preparation of the project, their careers and faculties with the participation of more than 50 professionals in different specialties.

As a result of various consultations, a preliminary draft is prepared and presented to the Council of Higher Private Education on August 2, 1996 . The project was not approved at that time indicating that, although the academic project was completed, the commission on formal and legal matters did not give its approval, which was notified on February 11, 1997 . After a series of technical and legal negotiations, it is presented for the second time under the name of the Creation Project of the " Universidad Panamericana de Guatemala " on December 12, 1997.

Finally, in a session on October 2, 1998, the Council of Higher Private Education decides to approve the creation of the Pan American University, thus ending the management phase. The execution phase is carried out as of November 17, 1998 , the date on which the Creation Agreement is published in the Journal of Central America in accordance with the laws of the country.121396_academy-celebrate-celebration-267885.jpg

On January 25, 1999 , the inaugural act of the Pan American University presided over by the University's Board of Directors was held. It was attended by representatives of the universities of San Carlos de Guatemala, Mariano Gálvez, Rafael Landívar, Francisco Marroquín, del Valle and Rural de Guatemala, as well as the members of the CEPS Higher Education Council, Government authorities and guests from other institutions.

During the opening ceremony there was a special mention of recognition to three founders of this project, who died without seeing it done: Mr. Rafael Pantoja Herrera, Mr. Renan Quiñónez and Dr. Guillermo Forno.

Universidad Panamericana takes as its headquarters to begin its academic work the facilities located on the road to San Isidro, Aldea Acatan zone 16, owned by FUNDACEDE and transferred in usufruct to the university. In these buildings the Christian Verbo College has been working on the morning since 1990 . For the beginning of its operations, Universidad Panamericana has had the infrastructure, furniture and equipment of the Verbo Christian College, as well as the Verbo Christian Church.

The Inaugural Lesson, by Mr. Rector Ing. Abel Girón, is held in the auditorium of the University Campus on February 13, 1999 . Universidad Panamericana begins offering educational services in its five faculties: Theology, Communication Sciences, Legal Sciences, Education Sciences and Business Administration.
