  • History & Memorable Moments

The origins of the University dates back to the establishment of first university in Costa Rica, the University of St. Thomas (Universidad de Santo Tomás), established in 1843. That institution maintained close ties with the Roman Catholic Church and was closed in 1888 by the progressive and mildly anti-clerical government of President Bernardo Soto Alfaro as part of a campaign to modernize public education. The schools of law, agronomy, fine arts, and pharmacy continued to operate independently, but Costa Rica had no university proper until 1940, when those four schools were re-united to establish the modern UCR, during the reformist left-leaning administration of President Dr. Rafael Ángel Calderón Guardia. Its current president for the term 2004-2008 is Yamileth Gonzalez Garcia. [1]
