  2. 2. Merida, Yucatan, 20 of February of 2014.- The School of Chemical Engi- neering at the Autonomous Universi- ty of Yucatan (UADY) was endorsed for the fourth consecutive time with a quality recognition for its educational program in Industrial Engineering Chemistry. "Receiving for the fourth time the accreditation certificate means is not a coincidence, we are talking about a quality that has come to stay and shows that UADY has a new form of academic life which makes things right for the benefit of students "said the president of the university Alfredo Dájer Abimerhi who received the award from Maria Elena Barrera Bustillos, president of the Accreditation Board for Engi- neering Education (CACEI by its acronym in Spanish). "All that UADY does is for the stu- dents’ better training, enabling them to build their life projects which will realize their professional careers and find the spaces where they can suc- cessfully perform as citizens and professionals," said the president at the distinction ceremony today in the courtyard of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering, Campus of Exact Sci- ences and Engineering. It is important to note that this ac- creditation, valid for five years, was granted in 1999, 2004 and 2009. The Directorate General of Academic Development at UADY reported that 36 of its 41 degree programs are cur- rently enjoying national recognition for its quality. "Our first obligation as an educational institution is to do our part to build a higher education system, which the country desperately needs," said the president before dozens of students, academics and members of the Univer- sity Council. "This system will ensure that all young people that study a de- gree, regardless of the institution, agen- cy or program will be guaranteed an education of quality." In turn Marcela Zamudio Maya, direc- tor of the School of Chemical Engi- neering at UADY said that "quality education is necessary to respond to young people who bet their intellectual capital to UADY to forge their profes- sional future" and said "the institution is accountable to society which has entrusted with the noble task of train- ing the professionals who will be re- sponsible for transforming the way we understand social development, bringing new logic and more inclu- sive and fair process in a society that must reinvent all days. " She also said that to achieve accredi- tation plan, they had to demonstrated that they counted with consistent studies, teachers with high profes- sional and educational qualification, relevant lines of research which were consistent with the social and productive needs, mobility pro- grams, interaction with the produc- tive sectors, modern infrastructure and comprehensive and specialized library collections. Finally Maria Elena Barrera Bustil- los, president of CACEI, said that of the 4,000 engineering programs in the country that only 16% have ac- creditation. "I deliver this recogni- tion to UADY, its officers, academ- ics and students who must be pleased that the work is paying off and to the productive sector; I say that in this university they are properly forming students so we can guarantee they come out with the profile that is required." tary schools in this city to narrate a series of short sto- ries, in order to promote reading and generate inter- est in other languages, said Julieta Guerrero Walker, director of the School of Using an innovative techni- que for teaching English, 27 students from the Bachelor of Teaching English (LEI by its Spanish acronym) attend on March 7, to two elemen- Education of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY).

" "Let us read, because a reading society is a soci- ety that thinks, that dis- cusses and builds togeth- er their own idea of the future. It is a society that is conformed by women and men, free, critical and creative ... by read- ing we opened the door to the extraordinary op- portunity to talk with the writer, and without thinking, we speak with Cervantes, Mo Yan, Gar- cía Márquez, Pacheco, Poniatowska, or Vargas Llosa, wherever they are. " Opening the FILEY Rolando Zapata Bello, Governor of the State, said that this event places UADY as an axis that integrates the Secretary of Education , the Minis- try of Culture and the Arts, the College of Arts Yucatan, CULTUR and private sponsors and cul- tural promoters , among others. "This is a reading fair that brings us to Guada- lajara and Ecuador and brings together in one space readers, writers and publishers, meaning the literary creative in- dustry as a whole," he said. "Last year at the opening of the fair, we reflected on the im- portance of a partnership of readers, reaching dif- ferent conclusions, but all reaffirming that un- doubtedly reading is the most noble and profitable act by which we obtain knowledge". "A society that reads, is happier, more educated, more prepared, more competitive, more in- formed and free, I'm sure you all know that read- ing, everywhere you look, is good, and in Yucatan we are not sat- isfied with just knowing and every time we are able to ex- tend the invita- tion to all to enjoy reading and culture." Mérida, Yucatán, March 8, 2014 -. "To the young people I ask you to read, read a lot. Nothing makes a father more proud than to see the amount of books their children read, "said Al- fredo Dájer Abimerhi today, president of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY) at the opening ceremony of the Third Edition of the International Fair of Reading 2014 (FILEY by its Spanish acronym) which brought together dozens of national and foreign writers and intel- lectuals as well as more than 130 publishing houses which together offer more than 200 thousand books of all genres.

" Quality education in general, and particularly higher education is a social priority and demand that the educational authorities have a duty to respond to as an essen- tial process for the formation of human resources that are appropriate and consistent with the economic, social , demographic, cultural and cross-cultural transformations, "said Maria Cristina Sifuentes Valenzuela president of the National Council for the Teaching of Dentistry (CONAEDO by its Spanish acronym) here today, to deli- ver the fourth consecutive ac- fredo Dájer Abimerhi , as well as students , teachers and re- presentatives of state health, professional associations and civil associations Sifuentes Valenzuela said that "evaluation, with the purposes of accreditation, is established as an essential mechanism to promote quality."
