Bolivarian University of Venezuela (Universidad Bolivariana de Venezuela)
The Universidad Bolivariana de Venezuela (UBV, English: Bolivarian University of Venezuela) is a state university in Venezuela founded in 2003 by decree of President Hugo Chávez.
The UBV is a part of the Chávez government’s “Mission Sucre” social programs, which aim to provide free higher education to the poor. Consequently, enrollment at the UBV is free and open to all, regardless of academic qualifications, prior education or even nationality. The government expects the student body to grow to 1 million by 2009, with more than 190 satellite classrooms throughout Venezuela.
The education programme at the UBV is generally in line with Hugo Chávez’s socialist vision of a Latin American “Bolivarian Revolution”. Opposition leader Julio Borges, though, labels it a “thinly disguised propaganda factory that takes advantage of the country’s most vulnerable citizens”. However, others are more optimistic. Maria Elida Castellano, the rector of the Bolivarian University in Caracas, has said that the institution is designed to benefit the poor precisely by encouraging the open exchange of ideas. Castellano said that the Bolivarian University is based on UNESCO principles for education and that “The professionals licenced by this institution will work for the transformation of society.
