He foresees that the University of La Pampa -as he proposes to call it- will have superior schools of Economic and Social Sciences and schools of Hygiene Visitors and Social Assistants, Electrotechnics, Obstetrics and Nursing.

On September 4, the National Comptroller of La Pampa, Dr. Amit, issued Law Decree 1644/58, also signed by Ministers Héctor Carlos Fazzini and Modesto Luis A. Del Sueldo. Approves the bases proposed for the creation, organization and operation of the University of La Pampa and provides for its creation with headquarters in the city of Santa Rosa, as part of the same program to expand education that would lead to the foundation of those of Jujuy, Catamarca, Lomas de Zamora, Entre Ríos, Luján, Misiones, Salta, San Juan, San Luis and Santiago del Estero.
