During his first visit to the island after taking office, the rector toured the university facilities in Tahíche, the Nursing Teaching Unit, and the centre affiliated with the School of Tourism. With the chairman of the Social Council he also met with the leadership teams of these centres in order to gauge their needs and evaluate future options for new undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications.
The rector, chairman of the Social Council, and vice rector for internationalisation subsequently attended a meeting with the president of the Lanzarote Island Council [cabildo], María Dolores Corujo, who expressed “the island’s long-established aspiration to have more university centres aimed at the courses which are most in demand in Lanzarote, as was the case with the University School of Tourism [Escuela Universitaria de Turismo]”.
This meeting addressed the possibility of beginning collaborative strategic planning between both institutions with regard to university teaching and research in Lanzarote for the coming years. The rector stated “that we hope to conclude with major agreements”, adding that “this meeting has allowed us to confirm the combined effort of the two institutions along with the chance for a joint project for the economic recovery of the island”.
