UP collaborates with other local universities to help relocated students
Zapopan, Jalisco March 2, 2017- In an effort to support young migrants, Universidad Panamericana Campus Guadalajara has joined other local universities in reiterating their commitment to help students affected by measures taken by the US government.
UP has always shown interest and responsibility in issues related to education. For this reason, the university has joined this effort whose goal is “to urge the governing bodies of the signatory universities to take the necessary measures to support the students" .
Other universities participating in this initiative are the following: ITESO, the Jesuit university of Guadalajara; the Technological Institute of Monterrey, Campus Guadalajara; the University of Guadalajara; and UNIVA, the Catholic university.
Dr. Juan de la Borbolla Rivero, rector of UP, together with the rectors of the above mentioned universities, has signed an agreement in benefit of students affected by new migration policies.
