The Sports policy in USAL will change, we want to provide the University with new equipment and infrastructures, and our team has the best professionals for this purpose.

I am convinced that we have sufficient money to be able to face these challenges. We want sports education to be one of the fundamental values in each University student and worker. We can reach as far as we want. For this purpose, we will work on developing a specific plan with the best professionals from our University.  We will obtain enough financing to be able to execute our plan for improving sports policy. We have already successfully obtained funding for the attraction of talent through agreements with Salamanca’s City Council and with the Municipality. Now we want to talk with the Junta of Castile and Leon in order to make them aware of the fact that our University is one with the least financing and that we are at the very end of the queue, in that respect. We have to be an example in everything, not only in energetic efficiency and sustainability but also in health habits. For this reason, we will succeed in getting the Junta of Castile and Leon to finance our project. They will also help us in creating sports infrastructures. We have to work with all the public institutions but also with private businesses, in order to be able to promote activities. We want our students to feel special and we can only do this by offering them the best conditions.
