We live in a society that grows and diversifies quickly. Technological competition has forced us to keep reviewing our operations, academic offerings and the demands of a market that evolves in unexpected ways.
As President, I intend to keep the Ana G. Mendez University System institution as a leader of higher education in Puerto Rico. We will strive to expand beyond our boundaries by developing international agreements and lure international students to take part of this institution’s offerings.
There will be great challenges, along the way, but guided by our strategic plans and determination, we will overcome any limitations that may arise. We have done so for the past six decades and will continue to do so, as we face new territories.
Education is an indispensable tool for the development of a country. It provides the tools necessary to transform and secure the needs of the population enabling it to become an engine of change and transformation.
I invite you to visit our institutions, reinvent your professional experience and dare to be part of the generation that will transform our country and the world.
