The chairman of the Social Council, Jesús León Lima, accompanied the ULPGC rector and ULPGC director on their visit to the Fuerteventura Island Council [cabildo] to strengthen collaboration with this institution in order to increase the academic courses offered by the ULPGC on this island.
The new rector of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Lluís Serra, and the director of the ULPGC, Roberto Moreno, recently visited Fuerteventura alongside the chairman of the ULPGC Social Council. Their aim was to meet with the president of the Fuerteventura Island Council, Sergio Lloret, and its governing team.
Both institutions have agreed to strengthen their collaboration to continue aiming to increase the courses offered by the ULPGC on Fuerteventura and to improve the centres where this teaching takes place. The Fuerteventura Island Council’s president and education councillor expressed their intention to provide a specific university centre in the near future, in order to continue expanding the teaching provided on the island and also to increase the programmes and university extension courses on offer.
Accordingly, the chairman of the ULPGC Social Council has stressed the importance of the ULPGC continuing to bring higher education to all the islands in the archipelago, in collaboration with the respective island councils. These institutions are represented within the Social Council and are crucial for providing the inhabitants of the Canary Islands with the chance to access university education – as a means for social change – on all islands.
The rector and the chairman of the ULPGC Social Council also met with the ULPGC’s Fuerteventura Nursing Centre [centro de Enfermería] leadership team and teaching staff in order to learn of their priorities and requests regarding infrastructure, concerning both teaching and research.
The new ULPGC rector will soon visit the university centre on Lanzarote, accompanied again by the chairman of the Social Council.
