About Us

Welcome from the Rector

Thank you very much for visiting the website of the University of the Incarnate Word Campus Bajío.

Currently, professionals require comprehensive training with a global vision. The world of culture and business has no borders. For this reason, our University wants to provide Mexico with an education that holds the necessary global vision that is based on the values ​​of faith, truth, service, education and innovation.

We are located in the heart of the country, in the important municipality of Irapuato, that is part of the entrepreneur, prosperous and culturally rich region El Bajio. At this location, we are implementing a unique educational model based on values, international accreditation and double degree backed by 135 years of experience at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, and validated by the success of the University Center Incarnate Word (CIW) in Mexico that has already 10 years of successful operation in the capital of the country.

Our doors are open to all people of good faith who share with us the dream of a Mexico with competent, professional, ethic and solidary men and women.

Welcome to this important ministry founded by the congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word. I invite you to meet us.

Kind regards,

José Antonio López Verver y Vargas
