  1. 1. presence of national and foreign universities is a recognition of the quality of educational pro- grams in UADY" said the direc- tor who recalled that this dynam- ic is also an opportunity to estab- lish new programs and agree- ments with Mexican and foreign institutions. Students from other countries are from universities in the UK, Spain, France, Germany, USA, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Japan and China. Induc- tion at the meeting dealt with issues related to services and programs and information of UADY, Merida and communities within the state. It was noted that most students' mobility focuses on the Campus of Social Scienc- es Economics, Management and Humanities where the Anthropo- logical Sciences is spearheading followed by Psychology, Law, Accounting and Education. Sub- sequently are the programs from the Campus of Sciences and En- gineering and then from Biologi- cal and Agricultural Sciences. Merida, Yucatan, January 14, 2016.- The Autonomous Univer- sity of Yucatan (UADY by its Spanish acronym) is among the ten schools of the country with the largest number of foreign students, a product of mobility programs. The above was said during the welcoming ceremony for one hundred ninety six na- tional and foreign students who will be doing academic stays of one semester at UADY. "This indicator is the result of a study by the Ministry of Public Education (SEP by its Spanish acronym)," said Gabriela Quintal Avilés, Head of the International Student Institutional Program from UADY. "In the south south- east of Mexico there is no other institution that receives more students than UADY and I think that this is the result of work done for several years," said Quintal Aviles adding that "even in the worst years of economic crisis, indicators remained sta- ble." Students of the Mobility Program of Spring 2016, attended an in- duction meeting that took place in the central building of UADY. Regarding the creation and consoli- dation of mobility programs, Quin- tal Aviles noted that "today in edu- cational institutions mobility is seen as, something that actually has important contributions to stu- dents." She asserted that students from Mexican universities also have this perception, as they know that institutions located in other regions of the country have differ- ent schemes and installations and this generates a level of demand, in addition to boost the academic ac- tivity. In turn, Carlos Alberto Estrada Pinto, General Director of Aca- demic Development, said mobility programs strengthen the axis of internationalization and place UADY on the world map.

  2. 2. Merida, Yucatan, April 6, 2016.- Du- ring a work meeting with executives of the Autonomous University of Yu- catan (UADY by its Spanish acronym), Yougun Ren, vice president of the National University of East Chi- na (ECNU), based in Shanghai, said the corresponding analysis to strengthen the areas and exchange programs between the two educational institutions were underway. Accompanied by four collaborators the ECNU representative participated in a meeting with José de Jesús Wil- liams, rector of UADY; Carlos Estra- da Pinto, Head of Academic Develop- ment; and Andres Aluja Schunemann, General Coordinator of Cooperation and Internationalization. The ECNU, founded in 1951, has a study population of 32,000 students and 1,700 academics; its educational programs are 61 undergraduate de- grees, 170 master's degrees and 130 doctorates. The areas of knowledge that are addressed are Sciences, Liber- al Arts, Management, Engineering, Law, Education, Philosophy, History and Economics. At the meeting, held in the Hall of Rectors, Yougun Ren stressed the fruitful and interesting relationship with UADY that began in 2014 when Tong Shijun, gen- eral secretary of the ECNU, visited the Yucatan institution in to give lectures on philoso- phy. A year later the two institu- tions, UADY and ECNU, es- tablished an agreement on general cooperation and it is expected that this year the academic mobility programs, that start in Septem- ber with the stay of a Chinese teacher at UADY to specialize in teaching Span- ish, will start developing in full form. "We are pleased by the support given by UADY" said the ECNU vice-president who was accompanied by Zhou Yong, office director of the Confucius Insti- tutes; Yang Zi, head of the oversight office; Yansa Li, director of the office of the Global Institute of Chinese Lan- guage and Yu Zhuang, deputy director of the School of Foreign Languages. "Given this dynamic process of cooper- ation, we hope you visit us, it will be an honor to have you in ECNU" the repre- sentative of the Chinese institution told the directors of UADY who recalled that "at present we have two yucatecos in this university” (Daniel F. Campos Toledo and Leticia Beatriz Bastar- rachea). It was also announced that efforts were being made to stablish a collaboration agreement with Cancun, Quintana Roo, and revealed that according to the policy of his country, which states that academics hold public office, he will soon be ap- pointed Municipal vice president of a city located 2 hours from Shanghai. For his part, José de Jesús Williams, rector of UADY, emphasized the importance of strengthening partner- ships and stressed, in particular, in- creased opportunities for students and faculty from both institutions to participate in various mobility pro- grams. "In addition to learning the language, either Mandarin or Spanish, it is fun- damental the knowledge of science and Mexican and Chinese culture," said the rector who stressed the inter- est in exploring areas of knowledge of mutual interest. Moments before concluding the meeting the traditional exchange of gifts was held, on the one hand the representative of the ECNU gave the rector of the UADY a calligraphy created expressly for this meeting. This document is a text that reflects the importance of working together. The calligraphy, written by a Chinese academic, was made on tissue paper and ink featured in the Asian coun- try, in it the names of the vice- president of ECNU and the author are also shown. In turn, the rector of the UADY gave the visitors a Mayan calendar carved in wood. U A D Y e n h a n c e s m o b i l i t y p r o g r a m s w i t h C h i n a P a g e 2
  3. 3. UADY and the University of Ohio, three teachers from the Degree in Rehabilitation were trained. He said that since 2012, Dr. Michele Basso, Director of Research at Ohio State University and her assistant Alexandra Borstad, have visited the Faculty of Medicine to train teachers with the purpose of creating the Cen- ter for Care of Patients with Spinal Cord Injury of UADY to serve a larger number of patients with spinal cord injury and also develop research in the area. "Now we have infrastructure and equipment needed for students and teachers to attend spinal cord injuries through this innovative technology with the aim of improving the quality of life of the people from Yucatan" he added. He noted that the Rehabilitation Unit UADY serves an average of 100 pa- tients a week in different areas such as occupational therapy, musculo- skeletal system therapy, problems of development, growth and with this new technique spinal cord in- juries progress and complications can be avoided. He also announced that Drs. Michele Basso and Alexandra Bor- stad, awarded a recognition to the Autonomous University of Yucatan, for the crea- tion of the Care Center for Patients with Spinal Cord Injury, which adds to the seven centers that apply this treatment in the United States. In the event were present Claudia Barrero Solís, Ermilo Contreras Acosta, Ramon Ignacio Esperón Hernandez and Marisa Solis Chan, professor at the Unit, Head of Gradu- ate Studies and Research, Academic Secretary, and Coordi- nator of the Degree in Rehabilita- tion at UADY respectively . Also present were Giovanna Arredondo Gomez, Head of Rehabilitation Service from the Hospital Ignacio Téllez; William Martin Duran from the ISSSTE Regional Hospi- tal; Miguel Manjarrez Gonzalez, Head of Physiotherapy at the Au- gustine Hospital O'Horan; Juan Miguel Vera Santos, President of the Mexican Association of Gradu- ates in rehabilitation, among oth- ers. Merida, Yucatan, June 9, 2016.- The University´s Rehabilitation Unit at the Autonomous Universi- ty of Yucatan (UADY by its Spa- nish acronym), commissioned its Care Center for Patients with Spi- nal Cord Injury, said Guillermo Montalvo Storey, director of the School of Medicine of this university. He explained that in the Care Center for Patients with Spinal Cord Injury at UADY, they developed the technique of locomotor training, treatment that favors active patient movement by stimulat- ing specific points that activate nerve fibers that are aimed at the spinal cord and that control the patterns of movements necessary for walking. He explained that this procedure involves placing the patient on a stand that controls the weight load the patient carries on its legs, a treadmill, to regulate the speed of the march, and three therapists to stimulate the patient's legs to try to reproduce the normal patterns gait. He stressed that the Ohio State University of the United States, is one of the institutions that has de- veloped scientific research on spi- nal cord injuries and locomotor training. He added that as a result of a collaboration agreement be- tween the Faculty of Medicine of U A D Y c r e a t e s i t s C a r e C e n t e r f o r P a t i e n t s w i t h S p i n a l C o r d I n j u r y P a g e 3
  4. 4. Merida, Yucatan 19 June 2016.- Education programs of Civil En- gineering and Physics taught at the Faculty of Engineering of the Autonomous University of Yuca- tan (UADY by its Spanish acronym), received the EUR- ACE ® label by the National As- sessment Agency Quality and Accreditation (ANECA by its Spanish acronym) of Spain, Luis Enrique Fernández Baqueiro, director of the university campus, reported. He explained that the EUR-ACE ® label is a certificate issued by an agency authorized by the Eu- ropean Network for the Accredi- tation of Engineering Education (ENAEE) to engineering pro- grams that are evaluated accord- ing to a set of defined standards, according to the principles of quality, relevance, transparency, recognition and mobility covered by the European Higher Educa- tion Area. He stressed that the EUR-ACE ® label is internationally recognized because it facilitates the recogni- tion of diplomas of graduates, both academic mobility and pro- fessional practice. It also identi- fies engineering programs of high quality in Europe and beyond its borders. He said that the European Federa- tion of National Engineering As- sociations (FEANI by its Spanish acronym), automatically includes titles stamped EUR-ACE ® in their home directory of engineer- ing programs that meet the academ- ic requirements to receive the title EUR ING - European Engineer. Meanwhile, the EUR-ACE ® sys- tem facilitates academic mobility both as a professional or for gradu- ates in Engineering. He added that the EUR-ACE ® label provides employers with quality assurance when assessing the titles of engineering educational programs. In an interview in the rectory of UADY, Maria Elena Barrera Bustillos, Director of the Council for Accreditation of Engineering Education (CACEI by its Spanish acronym) said that this recognition is results of the work of interna- tionalization of CACEI, which aims to improve the quality the formation of Mexican engineers to international standards. She recalled that last year a cooper- ation agreement between CACEI and ANECA, "in this agreement, ANECA evaluated our six engi- neering programs from three re- nowned Mexican public universi- ties: the Autonomous Universi- ties of Nuevo Leon, San Luis Potosi and Yucatán ". She stressed that the six pro- grams evaluated obtained the Seal of EUR-ACE and are the only throughout America who have earned this recognition, "this speaks of the good quality of Mexican education programs," she said. Dr. Jose de Jesus Williams, rec- tor of UADY, said that "our uni- versity is committed to providing quality education, as set out in the first two strategic objectives of the Institutional Development Plan, which is to form citizens from high school, undergraduate and graduate programs that are highly competent at national and international levels, and to have a relevant educational offer and renowned for its good quality.

The seven women, originating from the communities of Sibaca, Tenango and Lacandon in the municipality of Ocosingo, Chia- pas, participated in the Congress of Mayanists with a craft exhibi- tion that included cross stitch embroidered clothing and prod- ucts of domestic and handmade pottery pieces. Roxana Gordillo Burguete counci- lor of the City of Ocosingo, Chia- pas commented that for this women participating in the Congress repre- sents an honor, but also a huge challenge. 'They leave for the first time their communities, they are women who had never had the op- portunity or the decision to leave their city, and now they do so to visit another state, which could be unthinkable for the dynamics that are kept their communities " she said. Gordillo Burguete thanked the Autonomous University of Yuca- tan for the approach they had with the municipality of Ocos- ingo by which this cultural ex- change experience could be achieved for both communities. Ocosingo is the largest munici- pality in Chiapas, it has 2,000 communities, all with different productive activities such as pot- tery, agriculture, embroidery, among others.
