Second Meeting of Marist Institutions of Tertiary Education
2006-11-21 - Mexico
The second meeting of representatives of Marist Institutions of Tertiary Education took place from the 9th to the 12th November at Guadalajara (Jalisco, Mexico) at the Marist University of Guadalajara.
The thirty participants, representing more than twenty Institutions, worked es-pecially on three subjects, which had been previously prepared by commis-sions appointed during the first meeting which took place at Curitiba (Brazil) in 2004.

On the first day, after a sympathetic and warm welcome offered by students from the University of Guadalajara, we worked on the subject of the possible creation of a Marist network of Institutions of Tertiary Education. On the sec-ond day, we studied a document on “the Marist Mission in Tertiary Education” and on the 1tth November we finally approved a proposal of offering a Marist formation service open to the Institute.

The morning of the 12th November was consecrated to finishing the subjects that were studied on the preceding days as well as nominating different in-ternational commissions: one for preparing the Statutes of the future network of Marist Institutions of Tertiary Education; another that will finish the document on “the Marist Mission in Tertiary Education”; another for studying pathways of collaboration between different institutions and another for proposing ways for mixed work in making use of information technology. A small committee of five persons will co-ordinate these work teams and will prepare the following meeting, planned for 2008 in Spain.

In the evaluation on the last day, the participants were unanimous in high-lighting the excellent hospitality of the University that hosted us, the good or-ganisation, the significant advance in the study materials that were presented and the excellent spirit which reigned during the entire meeting.
Brothers Emili Turú and Juan Miguel Anaya participated in the meeting, repre-senting the General Council’s Mission Commission.

From that date, the Marist Brothers, at the request of Mgr Pedro Fedalto, Archbishop, have taken up the administration.
