The Board

Origins

In 2007, the FOOT began the process of creating a board made up of representatives from across the University community, members of institutions and professional associations, and businesspeople. The main mission of the Board is to provide resources and to act as an advisory body that is able to help adapt teaching programmes, and training and cultural activities in response to the needs of society.

 
The Board was created for a number of reasons, the main one and driving force of which was to collaborate in setting up the blended learning scheme for the Diploma in Optics and Optometry.
 
All of the information about the aims of the Board, as well as other aspects about it, can be found in the Founding Charter of the Board of the FOOT, which was approved by the UPC’s Board of Trustees at the meeting held on 3 July 2007.

Otherwise, the 20th. of June 2008, the Governing Council of the UPC approved the Regulation of the Board.
