Last Tuesday, two suspicious bags were found on the premises of the Interamerican University, Cupey Campus. Authorities showed up after receiving a phone call tip and declared the emergency protocols.

The ADUPRH (Asociación de Docentes de la Universidad de Puerto Rico en Humacao, in Spanish) demanded that former interim chancellor of UPRH Hector Ríos Maury be removed from nominations for the currently open chancellor in property position. The professors association demands this due to his lack of an ethical approach to his job which could be further revealed with ongoing investigations realized by government entities.
The UPR Medical Sciences Campus employees demanded the removal of the president of the UPR’s Governing Board Walter Alomar Jiménez and the president of the Financial and Retirement Issues Committee, Zoraida Buxó Santiago, from the governing board due to financial irresponsibility.
