2019-03-31 - General House

Between April 1st and 6th, the VIII Assembly of the Marist International Network of Higher Education takes place in Lima, Peru. With the theme of building bridges in a fragmented world, the assembly aims to strengthen the reflections and dialogue between the different Marist actions of higher education on the five continents. Throughout the week, the assembly will be attended by representatives of more than 20 Marist universities from around the world.

With almost 15 years of existence, the group of the Marist International Network of Higher Education has been seeking, since 2004, to create multidirectional connections in inter-institutional communication among Marist universities. Since the First Assembly, which took place in Curitiba (PR), the relationship between the representatives of the group are based on the principles of identity, belonging, equality and participation.

For Brother Carlos Alberto Rojas, the Coordinator of the Secretariat for Education and Evangelization of the Marist Institute, this assembly will be very important, because, from the dialogue held in it, there will be possibilities to rethink on the paths to follow the legacy of Champagnat. For him, the challenges faced by the Marist mission to respond to the calls of the children and young people of today's world are very complex. Therefore, it is important to gather a synergy among all Marist units to meet these needs. "We need to make all our energy, capacity and resources available to respond to these demands," he says. "Our higher education institutions are invited to take a step forward and lead the search for solutions to the obstacles we face," he concludes.
