New Director for IGLU
Montreal, Canada, 02/11/2018.- A new Director for the Institute for University Management and Leadership (IGLU-IOHE) has been named in January of this year.

Following consultations led by the Board of Directors and the approval of the General Members Assembly to return the Executive Directorate of IGLU to the headquarters of IOHE’s General Secretariat, Dr. Jiménez was identified as the ideal candidate for this position due to her extensive experience in the domains of leadership and higher education, as well as having held various management positions in the private sector.
