The National University of Equatorial Guinea (UNGE) is now a member of the St. Thomas Aquinas International Council of Universities (ICUSTA). On Friday 23rd June, in Avila (Spain), the XIII Forum of this consortium came to a close.
The acts at the forum began with a thanksgiving mass. At the conference, the various Catholic universities in attendance presented their solidarity initiatives, setting out the new focus which a modern university has to include.
The university must have a social function, taking into account that university education aims to serve society”, underlined Diosdado Nguema Obono, general secretary of the UNGE, a participant at the meeting, in representation of the Magnificent Rector, Filiberto Ntutumu Nguema.
During the day, representatives from the UNGE and the Catholic University of Avila, signed cooperation agreements, covering the training of teachers and the exchange of teaching staff and students, together with the recognition of credits and the accreditation of studies.
This achievement is in response to one of the aims of the UNGE with regards to the scope of the university, in order to be able to provide our experience and be recognised by other universities, and so that we can find out what others are doing in the field of educational research”, said Jose Luis Mangue, secretary of the Faculty of Humanities and Religious Sciences at the UNGE.
