Information dialogues on Law 704 and COVID-19
A team led by Dr. Alta Hooker Blandford, rector of URACCAN, and in the company of PhD Enrique Cordón, vice-chancellor of the Bilwi compound, visited the University Extension of Waspam to report on the obligations of Law 704 and the current context of COVID-19.
Hooker stated that these dialogues of knowledge are being carried out in the framework of the preparation of the obligations of Law 704, The Creator Law of the National System for the Assurance of the Quality of Education and regulator of the National Council for Evaluation and Accreditation (CNEA), Article 10, and the forthcoming visit of the CNEA evaluators, as well as to know the implementation of the institutional security protocol from each of the enclosures and extensions.
Hermes Castellanos (PhD), coordinator of URACCAN waspam extension, expressed enthusiasm for receiving a visit from the university's top authorities. "That helps us to be more motivated and for you to verify the work we are doing in the extension," Castellanos said.
The educational processes in Waspam are formed from the Intercultural Community Extension; classes are mostly taught in the Miskita indigenous language; therefore, the meeting was held in Spanish and miskitus, to be more fluid and that officials could clearly understand the message conveyed by the Rectory team.
Similarly, a hygiene utensil kit was delivered from the Rectory of URACCAN, so that the university community of the Waspam extension has the opportunity to implement safety protocols before COVID-19, thus demonstrating that this Intercultural Community University remains committed to protecting the health of all, in addition to the prevention of viral diseases.
