Council of Rectors receives Minister Eyzaguirre in its plenary session

In a plenary session held at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, the rectors of Cruch received Minister Nicolás Eyzaguirre, who explained the scope of the reform in higher education.

 In its ordinary session in March, the plenary session of the Council of Rectors of Chilean Universities received Minister Nicolás Eyzaguirre, at the first meeting between Cruch and Mineduc after President Michelle Bachelet took office.


The vice president of the Council of Rectors, Juan Manuel Zolezzi, said that the minister explained details of the reform that is expected for higher education, especially regarding the financing of research initiatives.


After the meeting, the minister expressed his satisfaction with the tenor of the conversation, noting that the rectors "expressed their position very frankly and along the way we converged." In addition, he pointed out that the Government values the contribution of private institutions with a public vocation, so that funding for research and for a student to have the right to gratuity will not make a distinction between schools. He valued the contribution of these institutions and recalled the commitment that the State wants to have with its universities.
