UOG wants to forge partnership with Spain

Posted: Jun 15, 2018 5:13 PM Updated:

For many, it's considered to be the equivalent to man landing on the moon. Scholars are preparing for the 500th anniversary of Magellan coming to Guam, as well the 500th anniversary of the circumnavigation of the Earth.

For this reason, outgoing UOG president Dr. Robert Underwood and UOG anthropology professor Dr. David Atienza recently traveled to Madrid. That's where they met with Spanish government officials, Spain's Ministry of Culture and Ministry of Defense, Casa Asia, and representatives from different universities.

Dr. Underwood shared his insights on that trip with Rotarians earlier this week, saying, "It is a significant event and we want to get in on the scholarship. We want to get in on the participation. We want to get in on the fact of allowing UOG students to go to Spain and UOG researchers to go to Spain, some to come here. We want to get in on that.

"And we want to make sure there's room for the perspective of Guam in that process."
