We are thrilled to formally welcome Universidad Científica del Sur into the ISCN!
Universidad Científica del Sur, located in Lima, Peru, forms leaders committed to human, social and environmental development. It offers quality education for the world of work, based on a personalized education and approach to each profession from the first cycle. The University has a modern infrastructure and the necessary components to become a competitive professional. It has five faculties of Health Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Business Sciences, Human Sciences and Veterinary and Biological Sciences, and a Postgraduate School where it offers important Masters, Specialties, Diplomas, Specialization Programs and courses in Health, Environment, Veterinary and other areas.
"Universidad Científica del Sur, from its origins, was conceived as an institution at the service of man (through its humanistic model) and the care of the environment. Therefore, we established our Campus in Villa El Salvador, which borders the only protected natural area of international importance in Lima: the Los Pantanos de Villa Wildlife Refuge - RVSPV. This is an example of our permanent commitment to environmental care.
In turn, we have been working on the development of a sustainable campus, where we are responsible for our solid waste, water use and carbon footprint.
We have an Operational Environmental Committee that involves academics, researchers and administrative managers, its main function being the promotion and strengthening of environmental management among all members of the university community.
The Plans of Study of all the careers offered by the university count, as part of their theoretical and practical content, the environmental commitment. In this line, we incorporate the environmental dimension in all races, an important differentiating element for us. This is aimed at strengthening their capacities, generating changes in consumption habits, as well as promoting research that contributes to entrepreneurship and sustainable development in the country.
Along these lines, we share with our students the subjects consolidated in the Sustainable Development Goals, recognizing the importance of these goals at the international level."
