Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador (PUCE), is a Jesuit University, located in the Ecuadorian capital of Quito. PUCE, founded in the mid-twentieth century by the Society of Jesus, is the oldest  and one of the most prestigious private educational institutions in Ecuador and is home to 14,000 students.

The city of Quito, founded in 1534 at an altitude of 9,350 feet, is a major metropolitan area with a population of almost 2 million. The Historic Center of Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centers in the Americas and was one of the first World Cultural Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO in 1978.

Quito is located in Ecuador's Guayllabamba river basin, which makes up part of the country's highlands region. The city is surrounded by many volcanoes, with Pichincha being the closest one. The average temperature hovers around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and it is divided into two seasons: dry and wet.
