Abstract

MONSALVEZ ARANEDA, DANNY GONZALO. BACKGROUND ON THE CREATION OF THE GRADUATE AND PROFESSIONAL CONTINUING EDUCATION SCHOOL AT UNIVERSIDAD DE CONCEPCION. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2020, n.522, pp.225-236. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29393/at522-105asdm10105.

The purpose of this paper is to highlight one of the most transcendental academic moments in the history of the Universidad de Concepcion in its more than 100 years of existence. We are referring to the encouragement and support granted to their faculty to pursue further studies abroad, and the process of hiring outstanding foreign and local academics and researchers with the purpose of strengthening the teaching processes of this university. Such events ignited the intellectual restlessness and professional interest of some academics to promote and create post-graduate courses and also professional continuing education programs. This process was institutionalized in the early 1960's under the administration of rector Edgardo Enriquez, when the Graduate and Professional Continuing Education School was created. Its aim is to strengthen the scientific work of its faculty as well as improving teaching and research at the highest level.

Keywords : Universidad de Concepción; Graduate and Professional Continuing Education School; Edgardo Enriquez.
