The Anahuac University Network is a private universities system grouped and administered by the religious congregation of the Legionaries of Christ. The network is composed of several universities, some with different names and educational approaches. The universities are located in different countries of the world, having presence in Mexico, United States, Chile, Spain, Italy and France.

The network is also affiliated with the international education system of the Legion of Christ called the Education Consortium Anáhuac (CEA) in 18 countries and serving over 100,000 students from kindergarten to graduate school.[1] The University network was founded in 1964 by the Priest Marcial Maciel LC., and has connections to the Catholic church. The motto of the organization is "Vince in bono malum" (Overcome evil with good). The university's goal is "to form leaders of positive action".

Mission[edit]

The mission is "to facilitate the process of formation and development of people of integrity who, with their excellent preparation by professional and cultural exchanges, with their deep human and moral formation, inspired by the perennial values of Christian humanism, for their genuine social conscience and for their leadership of positive action, promote the authentic development of man and society.”

The name "Anahuac" literally means “near the water”. The name is derived from the location of the first university in the network, the campus "Universidad Anahuac Mexico Norte" located in the area of Lomas Anahuac in Interlomas in Mexico City. The name refers to "the lake region that gave central place at the Aztec capital: Tenochtitlán, Central America's most populous and largest cultural development, where the City of Mexico now stands and in it, the University.
