Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (ICP by its Spanish initials) Executive Director Carlos Ruiz Cortés and Inter-American University of Puerto Rico Interim President Dr. Rafael Ramírez Rivera signed a collaborative agreement between the institutions this week to create projects and promote the development of education, training and research in areas of art and culture.

The agreement also serves as a preamble to the planning of the next edition of the Campechada, to be held during November in San Germán, the municipality where the university was founded in 1912.


During the signing, the San Germán campus chancellor, Prof. Vilma S. Martínez Toro, and the executive director of the university’s board of trustees, Dr. José Luis Colón González, were present.


“We believe in collaborations as a model to strengthen our mission and we are sure that the exchange between our two institutions will favor the realization of large projects, which will promote education and the dissemination of our culture,” Ruiz Cortés. “This agreement will allow us to share resources between both parties to achieve common objectives and will guide our preparation for the next Campechada in San Germán.”


In effect until Dec. 31, 2024, the collaborative agreement promotes the exchange of human resources between the two institutions, and the creation of educational, programmatic and self-management projects. It serves as a framework for collaboration in the realization of joint activities, development of special programs and projects that are determined by mutual agreement and that benefit the public.


“Inter-American University has stood out for being a promoter and defender of the culture of our country through multiple educational and social projects,” Ramírez Rivera said. “We trust that our collaboration will promote the development of meritorious projects to preserve our essence as a people.”


The two institutions agreed to maintain broad cooperation in the following: cultural management programs, ICP and Inter-American publishing houses, study and practice experiences, graphic design and photography, and topics in history, archaeology, architecture, ethnography, arts economics, geography, anthropology, cartography, business administration, education, and law and information sciences.


The mission of the ICP is to research, preserve, promote and disseminate Puerto Rican culture in its diversity and complexity.


Inter-American University is a non-profit organization that for over 111 years has been dedicated to preparing students in all branches of humanistic, social and scientific work, and has served as a cultural bridge between the different regions of the American continent.
