On October 23rd, UPS officials, professors, administrative staff and students attended one of the university's auditoriums to hear the final evaluation report presented by the Ecuadorian Assessment, Accreditation and Higher Education Quality Assurance Council (CEAACES) about UPS-Quito.
Dr. Edgar Tello, previous academic coordinator, talked about the evaluation process in the university, the methodology and the projections for the university. He explained that two institutions were in charge of the evaluation, the Escuelas Politécnicas evaluation and accreditation department and the education quality assurance administration. They were in charge of verifying the fulfillment of the improvement plans.
