The president of the Compostela Group of Universities (CGU), Carla Martins, and the Executive Director of the Colombian Association of Universities (ASCUN), Óscar Domínguez González, signed a collaboration agreement between the two institutions.

ASCUN, a private non-profit organisation representing 95 higher education institutions in Colombia, and GCU, an international association of higher education institutions with a presence in Europe and America, recognise their mutual interest in developing joint activities related to science, culture and higher education.

The protocol establishes the commitment of both associations to work together in identifying actions to promote the internationalisation of higher education, academic cooperation, quality of teaching, research cooperation and reciprocal academic mobility. It also seeks to contribute to the strengthening of diplomatic, educational and personal relations between ASCUN and GCU member institutions, as well as to create spaces for sharing good management practices.
