      Cuba Evaluates Community-based Universities

      Havana, Jan 3 (AIN) The achievements of the Cuban program to make
      university education available at the community level will be
      analyzed at the Fifth International Congress on Higher Education,
      University 2006.

      The event, scheduled for February 13-17 in Havana, has as its main
      objective to examine strategies to guarantee a lifetime of
      educational opportunities for a majority of the world's population,
      something already a reality in Cuba.

      The creation of municipal university centers, which concluded in the
      year 2005, is considered one of the most important educational
      reforms implemented last year in Cuba.

      More than 2,000 university extension centers were set up in all the
      169 municipalities on the island. The effort is considered a way of
      increasing social justice for Cubans by expanding the educational
      possibilities for all young people.

      University 2006 will examine possible transformations in higher
      education systems that would give those institutions a key role in
      developing actions to attain sustainable development in different
      countries.

      In addition, the congress seeks to facilitate the exchange of
      experiences and research results in different countries on the
      advanced training of educational experts and university professors.

      Establishing forms of international cooperation aimed at increasing
      the quality of education in the world is another goal of the forum.

      Cuba has been the host of the International Congress on Higher
      Education, held every two years since 1998.

      Some 2,000 foreign delegates have already confirmed their
      participation at the Fifth International Congress on Higher
      Education, University 2006, among them, higher education ministers
      and rectors.
