With the signing of an agreement with the Organizing Committe of the 16th Pan American Games (COPAG), Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM) has become an official partner of the Pan American Games.
The agreement signing was attended by COPAG's General Director, Carlos Andrade Garín; UVM's Rector of the Central Region, Silvia Rivera Damián; UVM's Institutional Director of Sport, Manuel Aceves Rubio; UVM's Chief Operating Officer, Dieter Hotz; COPAG's Director of Sales and Marketing, Horacio de la Vega; and COPAG's Director of Operations and Sports, Ivar Sisniega.
"UVM joins this great sporting event by bringing the Pan American games the most valuable thing we possess - the talent of our students. More than a thousand students from campuses throughout Mexico are thrilled to be able to participate in the Pan American Games," said Rivera Damián.
"We hope that the Pan American Games will be an inspiration to our students, helping them to open their eyes to the world of opportunities around them," stated Dieter Holtz.
Over one thousand UVM students will be supporting the Pan American Games, both at the Pan American Village, at the Polyclinic, and through providing hospitality services.
In addition, UVM will support the games by loaning facilities to COPAG like sports fields and parking lots. "There is no better opportunity for all our students to engage with real life," added Dieter Holtz.
UVM has 38 campuses throughout Mexico that enroll more than 125,000 students, including Juan Rene Serrano the Mexican national goalkeeper who is currently working to earn a degree in Industrial Engineering.
