We are the heirs of a tradition and holders of a historical legacy that has to be preserved, magnified and transmitted with the support of everyone.

My vision and working ability, as well as experience are what the University of Salamanca needs. Among my desires for the future is to reclaim the influence of USAL in order to place it on its corresponding level, given its prestige and tradition. We have big challenges before us which will attract the best students, because they are the best ambassadors.

In my electoral program, there will be three main themes: university community, quality education and social responsibility. We will focus on stabilizing, promoting and rejuvenating the PDI (Research and Teaching Staff Service) and we will immediately initiate a plan for the promotion of PAS (Administration and Service Staff). We will provide students with support services and we will take measures that will facilitate employability.

In order to achieve the highest quality, the University of Salamanca has to be a leader in Master and Doctorate programs, for its teaching activity to be valued and for its education to receive the resources it needs. Degrees that have few students have to be strengthened and mobility programs have to be boosted on all levels. We have to make the University of Salamanca, a leader in teaching, research, social responsibility, transfer and internationalization.

Although there is always a limit to improvement, I am convinced that the work we have realized in the past years together with the current rectory team, has succeeded at improving financing, increasing scientific publications and reviving the joy from doing good work. All this, despite of the decrease in the number of researchers.

We are the heirs of a tradition and holders of a historical legacy that has to be preserved, magnified and transmitted with the support of everyone.
