First UAC-CP Graduate Organizes International Seminar at Carmen Pampa
The UAC-CP’s very first graduate–Dr. Angel Rolando Endara, PhD (Agronomy, 2001)–returned to Carmen Pampa this week with a group of colleagues, researchers and master’s degree students from the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México.
Dr. Endara, who is a researcher of forest management and conservation at the Institute of Rural and Agricultural Sciences in Mexico, initiated the visit with his alma mater. Taking advantage of the team’s visit to his native Bolivia, Dr. Endara suggested they visit Carmen Pampa and asked UAC-CP leadership to organize an international seminar that would allow the master’s degree students traveling with him to present their research work for UAC-CP students and faculty.
Dr. Endara was joined by his colleagues: Dr. Francisco Herrera Tapia, who specializes in public policies and management of protected land areas in Mexico; and Dr. Humberto Thomé Ortiz, who specializes in rural tourism in Mexico.
The two institutions hope this first international seminar will pave a path for future academic collaborations, including study abroad and internship opportunities for students in both Bolivia and México.
