Universidad La Salle also referred to by its acronym ULSA is a private Catholic secondary and higher education institution run by the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools in 15 campuses in Mexico. It offers high school, bachelor, master and Ph.D degrees. It has had an expansion in the country, creating its own university national system. Its main campus is located in Mexico City, and has a presence in Ciudad Obregón, Chihuahua, Gomez Palacio, Monterrey, Ciudad Victoria, Leon, Morelia, Pachuca, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, Puebla, Oaxaca, Cancun, Cuernavaca and Saltillo.

It is part of the educational community of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, founded by Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle, patron saint of education. The congregation has about seventy-seven thousand lay partners and one million students around the world, with establishments of higher learning in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, France, Guatemala, Israel, Ivory Coast, Jerusalem, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Spain, the United States, and Venezuela.


In 1905, the brothers of La Salle Jerbert Alphonse Gibert, Adrien Marie Astruc, Amedée Francois Vincent and Antoinde Claude Carrel traveled to Mexico from Le Havre, France, along with Br. Pedro Celestino Schniedier who traveled from Colombia. They founded the delegation of LaSalle brethren in Mexico. The brothers established schools in Puebla, Toluca, Torreon, Monterrey, and various other locations in the country. Their first high school in Mexico City opened in 1931, the Colegio Francés De la Salle. In 1932 the school won formal recognition and authorization by the National Autonomous University of Mexico. In 1938 the Colegio Cristóbal Colón was also established in the Colonia San Rafael.

The history of Universidad La Salle began with the relocation of Colegio Cristóbal Colón to the center of the traditional Colonia Condesa in Mexico City in 1962. On February 15 it opened its doors with only the high school building completed and a partially built tower, gym and auditorium. By May of the same year, it had rapidly grown to announce its transformation from just a school to a full university category. Since then, it has undergone continuous expansion. The main campus has a population of approximately 10,000 students, and has expanded its campus throughout Mexico City with buildings in many areas of the city.

There are branches of Universidad La Salle in 15 Mexican states. The La Salle educational institution itself is represented in over 82 different countries, and 5 continents making it the largest educational community in the world.

ULSA is among the top 7 private universities in Mexico and ranked in the top three in areas such as Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Medicine.

The Universidad La Salle medical school (Facultad Mexicana de Medicina) is one of the most prestigious medical school in Mexico. It was Mexico's first private medical school and was founded in 1970. It is accredited by the Consejo Mexicano para la Acreditación de la Educación Médica (COMAEM), and is listed in the International Medical Education Directory. Albeit a young school, many of the country's department heads are graduates from La Salle.
