In URACCAN campus New Guinea, the first working session of the joint commission is developed between the National Council of Evaluation and Accreditation (CNEA) and the University of the Autonomous Regions of the Nicaraguan Caribbean Coast (URACCAN), with the aim of discussing actions that allow to start the process of accreditation of the agroforestry engineering career, offered by this house of studies.
For Dr. Maribel Duriez, chair of the CNEA "this first working session of the joint commission allows us in January the Agroforestal career to begin its accreditation process, and if accreditation is achieved, the first accreditation in the country would be achieved", he said.
For her part, Dr. Letisia Castillo, academic director of URACCAN, poses as a great challenge to be in an accreditation process, ensuring that this "means complying with those quality standards and within the framework of quality management, also means setting the example to the entire university community and to the entire Higher Education of Nicaragua" adding that "it is also to be able to possess the agroforestry engineering career, that graduates that we have had during the course of the race can be proud to be graduates in an accredited career with quality standards and with a seal that guarantees that as such," he argued
Likely, the vice-chancellor of the New Guinea precinct, Eugenio López, stated that "to hold this meeting where we talk about the actions to be carried out allows us to... prepare to comply with everything required, to comply with the process that requires accreditation of a career," he said
For URACCAN, being in the first accreditation process of the country, requires the participation of each of the campuses and university departments and since these planning processes is preparing the route to follow in conjunction with the National Assessment and Accreditation Council of Nicaragua.
