Universidad Iberoamericana (also known as UNIBE) is a private, coeducational, university in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

UNIBE (Universidad Iberoamericana) is a private non-profit coeducational university in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Founded in 1982 as a result of the initiative of the Iberoamerican-Cooperation Institute and a Management Committee in the Dominican Republic. The document was signed on January 12, 1982, at a ceremony held at the Embassy of Spain.

The University began with self-effort of the Dominican authorities, and the main causes behind its foundation can be expressed as follows: the V Centenary of the Cultural Encounter between Spain and the American people, the desire to strengthen Hispanic ties between the American countries and Spain, as well as offering an answer to the educational needs of the country, as an institution of high academic quality and highly formative.

It acquired its legal status by the Decree No. 3371 of July 12, 1982. UNIBE academic life began on September 1, 1983, offering careers in law, Engineering and Medicine. The following year featured Architecture Business Administration as career offers, and by May 1985 the career of Dentistry, attracting a first group of Spanish students at the School of Dentistry, due to the facilities and the quality of education offered in this field.
