“CUMex is still a reference organism regarding quality education and must continue to be an organization, to which those institutions not yet incorporated, wish to become part of”, he said as he paraphrased, Dr. Rodolfo Tuirán, Higher Education Undersecretary.
In a meeting that took place at the “Emilio J. Talamás “Seminar Center, he stated to the deans that an evaluation about CUMexwork is being considered. One of the major purposes is to achieve a shared responsibility in the leadership of the Consortium. “A more participative and responsible way to make us feel part of the Consortium is to divide responsibility, and not to let a single institution all of the programs. For now, we are assuming such a responsibility in order to give fluency to this project. Today Dr. FranciscoOsorio is responsible for the National Professorships until the Deans´ Council determines the proper way of action”.
Ms. Flavia Jamieson stressed that the National Professorships is one of the most successful programs of the Consortium since it has not only been enriching all of the universities but also to the students, and the academic bodies trough the eight established areas.
The generalcoordinator of CUMex added: “The work accomplished through the country, the agreements, and discussions about exchanges created within the National Professorships framework, make us feel hopeful that 2011 session will allow us to consolidate the communication bonds among quality researchers of the nation.”
