From 3rd to 5th October 2019, the University of Piura (Peru) and the University of Navarra (Spain) will hold the fourth in a series of international congresses, “Building Universities’ Reputations” (BUR), a major Spanish academic forum on education and university reputations.

This 2019 congress will be held in Peru, on the Piura campus of the University of Piura, and will focus on understanding “The University’s Contribution to Society”. The aim is to reflect on the role played by the university in society, and how the interactions between the two affect the university’s reputation and hence sustainability.
