-- ANDRES BELLO BECOMES LARGEST PRIVATE UNIVERSITY.
With its purchase last week of Educares University, Andres Bello
National University (UNAB) has become the largest non-traditional
private university in Chile and has a new department of education.
The purchase was signed by the presidents of both universities,
Joaquin Barcelo (UNAB) and Hernan Precht (Educares). Precht had
been dean of architecture and construction at UNAB until a few years
ago. UNAB now has 9,000 students on campuses in Vina del Mar,
Rancagua and Santiago.
