“The photos in this post summarize what I lived on 26, 27, 28, and 29 September at the Universidade Del Litoral (UNL) in Santa Fe, Argentina. The Escala Gestores y Administradores program of AUGM surely fulfills its function of strengthening the university management and administration, contributing to their development, and increasing the understanding of the different organizational structures. The visit provided me with a rich exchange of experiences and procedures concerning the activities carried out at UFSC and UNL. I thank UFSC and SINTER for their support and trust. I thank UCL for the reception, hospitality and kindness”.
