Ana Botín calls for a leading role for education and more public and private resources

22/05/2018

IV Encuentro Internacional de Rectores Universia


Ana Botín, chair of Universia and Group executive chairman of Banco Santander, oversaw the closing ceremony today in Salamanca of the IV Universia International Rectors' Meeting with a speech advocating a more prominent role for education since it is the ”main response and best tool for facing the great challenges and dealing with the problems of today and the future".  The two-day meeting, which coincided with the University of Salamanca's 800th anniversary, brought together 600 rectors from 26 countries representing 10 million university students around the world, in a discussion with the theme “University, Society and Future” on the challenges facing universities. The conclusions are set out in the ‘Salamanca Charter’, a document that “reiterates the universities' commitment to continue leading progress by reinventing and transforming themselves”, according to Ana Botín.
