CATIE professors: you are in good hands
Professionals who lead research, development and cooperation projects and programs in Central America are who share their knowledge in CATIE’s classrooms.
“To know and be part of a group of people from different countries has helped me to value the multi-cultural aspect and recognize that the most important aspect of our institution is its human resources, which include the Center’s students even after they leave CATIE,” concluded Jorge Faustino.
CATIE brings together at its headquarters a wide gamma of the highest level of professors and researchers, who are alumni of prestigious universities and who have extensive experience and social and formative commitment. In the Graduate Program, our main asset is our students and professors. For this reason, we have high-quality technical, scientific and academic staff that has an outstanding commitment to teaching. They are also committed to CATIE’s values, to sustainable development and to the well-being of humanity.
Our professors work in the research, development and cooperation projects and programs that CATIE implements, together with multiple partners, in the countries in the region. This field experience converts our faculty in a catalyst for truly enriching educational processes. CATIE also has highly qualified associated and affiliated professors who are recognized internationally.
“When I entered CATIE in 1985, I had the opportunity to take advantage of a huge change in my professional development; I was working at the National Agrarian University La Molina in Peru, where my work was mainly academic and administrative. The big change was to become part of an internationally renowned team of professionals that combined research with teaching and outreach. This was unique in the region, and I have learned a great deal.
The experience of guiding and polishing the theses of graduate students has been a very special experience for me. Research activities and the participation of graduate students in the development of their theses have allowed me to learn and value the technical and scientific level of knowledge in current issues, their application to the realities of the countries in the region, and most of all, for the direct benefit for rural families.
To know and be part of a group of people from different countries has helped me to value the multi-cultural aspect and recognize that the most important aspect of our institution is its human resources, which include the Center’s students even after they leave CATIE,” concluded Jorge Faustino.
