Universidad Francisco Marroquín (UFM), or Francisco Marroquín University, is a private, secular university in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Its website characterizes its mission as "to teach and disseminate the ethical, legal, and overall economic principles of a society of free and responsible persons." According to Milton Friedman, it is "one of the leading universities in Latin America. It was founded in 1971 by Manuel F. Ayau, known as Muso. Its namesake is Francisco Marroquín, an early bishop of Guatemala and translator of Central American languages, but the university does not follow any of his teachings or philosophies. Started by members of Centro de Estudios Economico-Sociales ("Center for Economic and Social Studies") with $40,000 and 125 students, UFM counts 2700 undergraduate students and 1500 graduate students as of 2009. The philosophy statement says that "universities need to place themselves beyond the conflicts of their time so that science and academic freedom – which humankind will need at all times – may be preserved.
