A small town located on Lago Villarrica in the Araucanía Region of Chile, Villarrica provides an ideal setting for the study of sustainability.

Located on Lago Villarrica, near the cities of Temuco and Pucón, this small branch campus of the Pontificia Universidad Católica offers programs focused on social and environmental sustainability.  The main goal of the Villarrica campus is to contribute to the Araucanía region through education and sustainable development.  This makes PUC Villarrica an ideal location for our spring semester Sustainability and Society Track, with a particular focus on socio-ecological sustainability.
