Last October 27, 2019, Universitas started its chapter in Europe with the new Officers for its International Linkages (OIL). The meeting was convened by the President, Atty. Oliver Tuazon, the Project Development Officer and OIL for Poland, Mr. Bino Socrates, and the new OILs, Mr. Frank Janssen for The Netherlands, and Ms. Kelly Vrijens for Belgium. It was held at the house of Kelly Vrijens.

During the meeting, the President brought up the possible projects in Europe, as well as possible collaborations between the Philippine and European chapters.

The initial meeting was followed by a training in conducting the Principled Leadership Course (PLC), the foundational course of Universitas. It happened on 22 December, 2019 in Maastricht. It was meant to prepare the new OILs for organizing PLC in Maastricht this June 2020.
