Dr. Gonzalez-Arechiga commented it is very important for Universidad del Valle de México to continue to participate in this process and to increase the number of awards in every degree and every UVM campus, "these awards are earned by our students, teachers, program coordinators and members of the academic cloisters and are an incentive for all those involved in their training, teachers and administration."
In 2012, 32 UVM programs were recognized, "now we increase the number to 42, which indicates that we are on the right track and will continue to maintain the energy and effort to achieve better results," said Dr. Gonzalez-Arechiga.
