Dominique Sardeing: “We welcome 1,100 students as best as possible at the Montauriol campus”
For the county council, the university center of Tarn-et-Garonne does not have the assets to attract new students. Dot with Dominic Sardin, adviser to the department and vice-president of the study commission “education, higher education and sport”.
How important is the university to the central county council?
Through our recovery plan, we have placed education as one of our priorities. The university center is at the heart of this system because it is managed by a department – specific to Tarn-et-Garonne. We provide site restructuring (almost complete), catering, student life services (at-risk student support fund, Pass cinema and pool, accommodation support, etc.), library maintenance. as well as all site management.
But what about the courses?
We are very involved in thinking about the adoption of new training through a steering committee in which we participate together with the three Toulouse universities, local partners, not forgetting the Greater Montauban and Occitanie regions. It is our aim to connect and develop the university center by hosting new courses. We all need to work together on this for spin-offs that benefit the entire department.
What are your priorities regarding these issues?
We want to welcome 1100 students as much as possible. The Montalban site is noted as a balanced university town. This should allow us to develop our campus together with Crous, especially with student housing in mind. We want to enable Tarn-et-Garonne students to find a post-baccalaureate education (health and social, law, school teacher, etc.) that meets their expectations. It is important for us to accept students from all over France for highly specific training, such as a master’s degree at the Institut Supérieur Couleur Image Design.
