The Catholic University of Lublin was founded in 1918. It is the oldest university in Lublin and one of the oldest in Poland. It was founded by the Polish Episcopate on the initiative of Rev. Idzi Radziszewski, who was also the first rector of the University. KUL has been entrusted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Its maxim is Deo et Patriae – For God and Fatherland.
KUL students can develop their passions and interests in nearly 70 scientific, artistic, and sports organizations that create the rich cultural life of the University. These are science clubs, theaters, choirs, galleries, and discussion clubs. Many initiatives and undertakings are included in the Academic Chaplaincy operating at the KUL Academic Church.
