Tulum, Q.R. — State officials have laid the first stone for what will be the Technological University of Tulum. Upfront, 29 million peso will be invested by the federal government.
Governor Carlos Joaquín was at the construction site along with the Secretary of Education of Quintana Roo (SEQ) Ana Isabel Vázquez and Tulum Mayor Mariano Dzul Monday.
There, the ceremony of the laying of the first stone kicked off the official start of construction. The university is being built to offer municipal students a place to study nearer to home.
Details regarding the size of the school, courses offered, building cost or completion date were not specified in the press release.
In June, Duzl reported a 10-hectare plot of land had been donated for the university, the second since the project was made public at the beginning of the year.
