In 2016, President Obama signed the law P.R.O.M.E.S.A., aggravating the socioeconomic and political situation of Puerto Rico. The University of Puerto Rico has always been a target of the neoliberal austerity policies of the US and Puerto Rico government. Activist Student, Ruth N. Figueroa-Couvertier, and Sociologist, César Pérez-Lizasuain, will reflect on those austerity measures and the impacts they have on the only public institution of higher education on the island.
