President’s welcome

Welcome to the Compostela Group of Universities and thank you for visiting our website!

The Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) was founded in 1994 thanks to the willing power of the Universidad of Santiago de Compostela. Over the next 3 decades, the CGU fulfilled its initial promise, growing steadily into what is currently a strong network of more than 60 universities around the world.

In 2020, the CGU was recognised as an association of public benefit, due to its active role in achieving excellence in higher education, its contribution to the dissemination of cultural heritage and common Universal values through its activities and initiatives, and, not least, its transparency in management.

Known for its strategic thinking and its creative and inclusive activities, the CGU aims to embrace Higher Education Institutions worldwide that are interested in academic cooperation and institutional development.

Please navigate our website to get to know us better, and do reach out if you feel that the CGU is the best for your academic community!

I am very much looking forward to meeting you in person in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Carla Martins
President of the Compostela Group of Universities
