UNIV is an university congress that ICU – Instituto per la Cooperazione Universitaria – organizes since 1968. Each year, thousands of university students spend the Holy Week in Rome, and thus have the opportunity of experiencing the cultural, historic and spiritual richness of this city. During the week, cultural meetings, congresses, conferences, exhibitions and concerts are organized. These offer the participants the chance of deepening their knowledge on the specific themes of the university world, in particular the need of paying attention to those in most need.
The first meetings were organized by the initiative of Saint Josemaría, founder of the Opus Dei: tens of thousands of university students and professors, over four decades, have expanded their own cultural horizons within the universal atmosphere of the Christendom.
The congress’s theme this year is “Rethinking the Future” and took place from the 25th of March and the 1st of April of 2018.
