Santa María La Antigua Catholic University | Universidad Católica Santa María La Antigua

The name of this house is a tribute to the Marian dedication with which the first diocese in Tierra Firme was founded, in 1513. Its first Rector was Father Ayechu, of the Order of Augustinian Recollects, appointed by Mons. Tomás Clavel, Archbishop of Panama and, therefore, the first Grand Chancellor of the USMA.

With the impulse of a group of citizens from different sectors, headed by Fr. Benjamín Ayechu, the approval of Decree Law No. 16, of July 11, 1963, is achieved, which enables private higher education in Panama. The Santa María La Antigua Catholic University (USMA) was the first to be founded with this character, on May 27, 1965, having as its headquarters the old Archbishop’s Palace, in the Old Town of the city.
