International Relations

The International Relations area is dedicated to creating, enhancing and expanding the university's international links in order to develop exchanges, activities, outreach and the internationalization of the institution.

Its mission is to promote, manage and support the academic development beyond our borders working with all the academic units (faculties, institutes, teachers and students), and the different directorships and vice chancellorships of the university.

The International Relations Department provides a set of policies and actions that generate cooperation in the higher educational world. It develops plans, programs and procedures to strengthen relations between the university and the community, companies, public and private agencies and other local, regional, national and international institutions.
