To staff and students

Dear friends,

As you all know, the upcoming election of Rector of the University of Valencia will take place on 22nd February.

As previously announced, we present ourselves as the candidacy for change at our University for conceivable and necessary change, for undisruptive, positive yet audacious change.

Out of the three candidacies standing for election, ours is the only one that stems from actively listening to staff and students every day. For the past months, we have been attentive to your proposals and have taken on board many of your ideas and suggestions to improve our University. With your help, we are constructing a collaborative project focussing on people, a solid project that addresses, reacts and provides solutions.

We are very grateful for your encouragement and support. Many of us are regaining individual and collective hope and enthusiasm. We are no doubt creating an inviting and committed movement that will allow people with experience and imagination to face the challenges that lay ahead of us with fresh ideas.

Your participation is essential in order to construct this project. During the forthcoming weeks, we will get the chance to meet, get to know each other personally and continue exchanging views and gathering new proposals leading towards an even better University. Moreover, we are of course looking forward to keeping in touch with you through our website and social networks, where we would like to invite you to continue making suggestions, and telling us about your ideas and concerns.

Kind regards,
Vicent Martínez
Candidate for Rector of the University of Valencia
