Mariano Pérez Arroyo, recipient of the 2018 Humanitarian Award by the Napardi Foundation

Mariano Pérez Arroyo, director of the UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair, has been recognized by the Napardi Charitable Foundation by being awarded its 2018 Humanitarian Award for his efforts in Rwanda. A neurophysiologist and former UMH faculty member, Mariano Pérez Arroyo has been involved with development cooperation efforts in Rwanda since 1994. This prize was awarded in November 2018 at the Napardi Gastronomic Society.

The Napardi Foundation has collaborated by funding various UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair projects; its support was vital for the construction of the Nemba lunchroom, a facility that now feeds 700 children every day of the year at the Nemba School. The foundation also collaborates in the fight against epilepsy, a disease that is highly prevalent in Rwanda.

 

This funding is received and managed by the UMH Headquarters in Rwanda Chair, an entity created in 2016 by the Miguel Hernández University of Elche to carry out development cooperation actions in that African country. The university focuses its assistance on areas of health, research, and education through training, the construction or renovation of infrastructure, as well as by providing teaching and health support. 

Even though the formal creation of this chair occurred relatively recently, the Miguel Hernández University of Elche has been present in Rwanda since the educational institution’s early beginnings. The then-psychology professor, Mariano Pérez Arroyo, now chair director, has led several projects financed by the UMH, the first of which was the renovation of the Musanze nursing school.

UMH staff visit the University of Valparaíso to share good practices

María José Pastor and Mónica Candela with the University of Valparaíso student mobility team.

María José Pastor, a staff member from the Service of Communication at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), and Mónica Candela, a technician at the UMH Service of International Relations, Development Cooperation and Volunteerism, have returned from a good practices stay at the University of Valparaíso (UV) in Chile through the Destino international mobility program for UMH staff. Their stay helped to learn new actions to explore in the area of student community and mobility through the exchanges of experiences of professionals from both universities.

During their stay, November 26-30, Pastor and Candela met with Alejandro Rodríguez, UV Institutional Relations Director, with the news team at Radio Valentín Lepelier, the Chilean university’s radio station, and along with teams at its units of mobility, agreements, and alumni. They also visited the Business Development Center in the city of San Antonio, an entity that has a close relationship with the UV. These actions were aimed at publicizing the work carried out by the UMH and learning about UV work structures, which, just like the UMH, has four university campuses.

UV professionals expressed interest in UMH Radio, where students and faculty from all four campuses participate; in contrast, the UV operates a generalist radio station where its university community does not participate. Good practices at the UMH Service of International Relations that the UV Mobility Unit is considering implementing at their work centers include the management of electronic applications, selection criteria for mobility programs, and the Buddy Program for accompanying exchange students right when they first arrive. UV actions praised by the UMH professionals, and under consideration for implementation here in Elche, include management and programming methodologies to improve activities, manage applications, and coordinate communication between university campuses.

The UMH has both framework and specific agreements for student and faculty mobility with the University of Valparaíso; in fact, that school is one of the most sought-after centers for exchange students who apply for Iberoamerica Destino grants.
