Universidad Complutence de Madrid, Spain
On May 17, 2017, in Madrid, Spain, the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs will co-host two events celebrating the 50th anniversary of IU’s study abroad program in Madrid at the Universidad Complutense, one of the oldest universities in the world. There will be an alumni luncheon during the afternoon to mark the 50th anniversary of the Indiana University, Purdue University and Wisconsin University Program in Madrid. In the evening, the IU delegation, program alumni, consortium partners and current students will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Reunidas Consortium at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Indiana University was a founding member of the Reunidas consortium, a group of American university programs which has collaborated together for five decades in conjunction with the Complutense.
President McRobbie will attend and make remarks at both events. His counterpart at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Rector Carlos Andradas Heranz, will preside over the evening event which will be held in the Complutense’s Hall of Events, called the Paraninfo, which is a formal space for ceremonies at the Complutense.
Program Alumni and their partners/spouses are invited to the campus visit, alumni luncheon, ceremony, and reception. RSVP is required for those who wish to attend. To RSVP, contact the Office of Overseas Study at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendees are responsible for a modest registration fee, their own international round trip airfare, hotel, other meals, and incidentals.
