Office for Solidarity and Co-operation

Description

The Office for Solidarity and Co-operation, is part of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor's Office for Institutional Relations and Co-operation. It was created in October 2002 as the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid's institutional commitment to effectively organise any activities undertaken for the sensitization, training and promotion of values and attitudes, based on co-operation, solidarity and justice, thus constituting a reference point in this field for the entire university community, while remaining open to other entities, bodies and groups. The Office is, in addition, a meeting point for listening to and receiving any
suggestions that students, teachers and administrative and service staff may want to make, while maintaining its own, very defined line of work, intervention and action.
