In the last couple of months we have witnessed, with great satisfaction,
the progress recorded by the fifth of the eight strategies of the rectory,
which refers to the Institution’s administration of physical infrastructure
Standing out, is the reopening of the old building of Law, which today
rests completely remodeled and equipped with the latest technology, primarily
benefiting our Law and Business students.
For three years the University embarked on a program to remodel its facilities
to suit current needs. The program represents both a great challenge and
a great financial effort for the institution. Since then, the Engineering
building has undergone a complete renovation, and has been equipped with
new laboratories. Likewise, improvements were made to the School of Medicine
buildings, and among other improvements, the endowment of dental units
to the School of Dentistry. .
The refurbishment program does not only include physical facilities, but
also involves projects to update furniture and necessary equipment for
the University to perform its basic functions
Recently remodeled building "A" is now the seat for the Social
Studies and Business Center, under Deanery of Social, Economic and Administrative
Sciences. It features a fully equipped Oral Trials Room, fully equipped
mediation rooms, a Gesell Chamber, as well as a Financial and Business
Laboratory conditioned to the highest level.
Furthermore, we have signed agreements with prestigious institutions in
order to enrich infrastructure. In the legal academic area, we have established
cooperation agreements with the Supreme Court of the State, with the Institute
of the Alternative Justice of the State of Jalisco and the law firm Baker
& McKenzie. And also in the financial and business scope with the
Supreme Audit of the State and the firm Price Waterhouse Cooper.
Hundreds of students working toward different career paths will benefit
from the use of these facilities and agreements that are sure to reinforce
what is learned in the classroom.
The Digital Edition of the School of Communication Science Laboratory has
also been equipped with new computers and a modern bio-reactor has been
acquired for the Biotechnology Laboratory.
These are some advances that the refurbishment program carries, a program
that does not stop or end, but rather continues forward with its main
purpose to promote the academic development, and excellence, of the Universidad
Autonoma de Guadalajara.
