On February 28, 2011 Universidad del Este welcomed the special visit of Penn State University Hubert H. Humphrey Fellow Mateo Estrella, Dean of Hospitality of Universidad de Cuenca in Ecuador. Mr. Estrella’s visit was co-sponsored by UNE’s International School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts.
Mr. Estrella gave two excellent presentations for UNE Students, faculty and associates. The first was entitled “Tourism & Sustainable Development”, while the second was entitled “Ecuador: Life at its Purest – Nature and Culture in the Middle of the World”. Both presentations were enjoyed by all who attended and were also webcast live to viewers at both the Universidad de Cuenca in Ecuador and Penn State University in University Park, Pennsylvania!
