Welcome university community to the Spring period 2022


1967 – 1976

In the early days of the university, Jesuits did not have formal approval to run the university or even work at ITESO. In this decade, the superior general of the Society of Jesus, Pedro Arrupe, gave his support to the university. As of that moment, it became a part of the Society.

Second Decade


Text based on the collection "Historical Events of ITESO", volumes I, II and III, by Alberto T. Gutiérrez Formoso, and the manuscript "Life at ITESO", written by Father Jesús Gómez Fregoso, SJ.
