Department of Extension
Haydée Domic Tomicic
Head of the Department
The mission of the Universidad de Santiago is “to contribute in an advanced level to the creation, preservation, cultivation, transmission and search of knowledge through research, teaching and extension in the fields of sciences, technology, arts and the humanities”.
The University extension, together with teaching and research, constitutes one of the fundamental tasks of the University in its institutional activity. Extension is part of the Connection to the society objective and arises from the institutional policy and the activity of the different units, which respond as part of their function to the critical construction of knowledge and contribute to the multiple aspects of social life.
Therefore, the Universidad de Santiago must concentrate its efforts in showing its scientific and cultural assets, with well defined actions, to the different defined target segments, as part of its function of establishing an image of academic excellence and social commitment with its environment.
On the other hand, these same actions must be available for the University community so as to create a positive connection with the institution and allow the community to grow as people and enjoy such actions.
