Outstanding faculty

Every year, the Universidad de Monterrey honors faculty members who have distinguished themselves for their excellence and the promotion of values, as well as for the impact their work has had on the university community and on society.

What is the Roberto Garza Sada Pro Magistro Award?

This award was incepted in 1995 thanks to the initiative and generosity of Doña Márgara Garza Sada de Fernández and her family. It constitutes the highest honor that the Universidad de Monterrey bestows upon its faculty in recognition of their work.

Through its name, the award acknowledges the work and transcendence of Don Roberto, a leading figure of our country who distinguished himself for his leadership in the entrepreneurial world, his support and promotion of education, culture, and art, and his commitment to service, and to the well-being of his community.
