Catholic University of Graben

The Catholic University of Graben (UCG) is a private higher education institution located in Butembo, North Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

In 1989, amid the turbulence of war-torn Congo, Bishop Albert-Kisimbi Ngoy planted a seed of hope with the Université Catholique du Graben (UCG). Starting small, UCG nurtured its philosophy, theology, and social science roots, even as conflict raged.

The 1990s saw UCG rise above the chaos, adding law, economics, and management, while forging international partnerships and lending a hand in rebuilding communities. By the 2000s, UCG boomed, expanding its campus, curriculum, and reach, earning national and international accolades for academic excellence and social responsibility.

Today, UCG stands tall as a beacon of education and progress, tackling development challenges, embracing sustainability, and preparing its students for a brighter future in Congo. As the university enters its next chapter, it faces evolving landscapes, but with its unyielding spirit and commitment, UCG will continue to be a force for good in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
