With record attendance for a semi-annual meeting and an excellent program, including two panel sessions, the Spain meeting held at the University of Alcalá, was a resounding success. Dr. Fernando Galván, Rector of the host institution was a very gracious and elegant host, keeping our group punctual to all activities. The networking was rich and participants had lively discussions both during the business meetings –with very important decisions regarding the future of the IAUP- and during the periods assigned for the panel sessions.
The two panel sessions had high caliber presentations by the following outstanding speakers:
Panel Session 1: Universities and the Preservation of Culture: an International Challenge
- Ramu Damodaran (United Nations)
- Juan Ramón de la Fuente (UNAM, Mexico)
- Remus Pricopie (SNSPA Bucharest, Romania)
Panel Session 2: Higher Education Institutions and Sustainability
- Carmen Z. Lamagna (AIUB, Bangladesh)
- Daniella Tilbury (University of Gibraltar)
- Fernando León García (CETYS, Mexico)
