Spanish Ambassador’s Visit to Balamand

On February 13, Her Excellency Milagros Hernando, Spanish Ambassador to Lebanon, visited the University of Balamand and met with President Elie Salem, in the presence of Vice President Georges Nahas, Deans Georges Dorlian, Tony Gergess, Walid Moubayed and Karim Nasr, and Spanish-speaking Faculty members. The visit was part of Her Excellency’s ongoing collaboration with major universities in Lebanon.

President Salem expressed the University’s interest in sustaining a continuous and durable collaboration with Spain on various cultural and educational levels. Ms. Hernando said that one of the Embassy’s mission is to create networks within the Lebanese society, and the University of Balamand, as one of the leading universities in Lebanon, is the place to initiate such cooperation. This would include the exchange of students and professors with universities in Spain.

The President briefed her on the University and its mission, and the Ambassador briefed the University team on the political situation in Spain, and offered a fascinating short survey of the major cultural and literary developments that have taken place in Spain since the 19th Century.

The meeting was followed by a luncheon at Salem House on Campus.
