UANL Enforces International Indicators

On May 22, President Rogelio Garza Rivera hosted the 26th UANL International Advisory Board Meeting, where issues such as inclusion, equity, and quality education were addressed.

In order to be acknowledged as a world-class institution, Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon has focused its efforts on the 2030 Vision of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

During the 2015 World Education Forum, the UNESCO and other organizations proposed to ensure equitable and inclusive quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030.

On May 22, the 26th UANL International Advisory Board Meeting was held to analyze the indicators and opportunity areas of our university.

One of UANL's goals for 2020 is to become a world-class institution; over the last years, it has worked on that purpose by means of student mobility, professor training programs, and international accreditations upon its curriculum.

"Such meetings are very important because we want to improve our indicators and boost the ones we are missing. Furthermore, we seek to operate in compliance with the 2030 Vision of the UNESCO," President Rogelio Garza Rivera stated.

According to UANL records, 38 academic programs have been awarded with international certifications. ABET, the Royal Society of Chemistry, ASIIN, and the European Accreditation of Engineering Programmes are some of the accreditation entities.

Among the guests of the meeting were advisors from Argentina, Brazil, the United States, France, South Korea, Spain, and Great Britain, as well as UANL authorities and directors.
