His personal history is deeply associated in collective consciousness with the affirmation of Salamanca as a city of reference in Spanish teaching. He co-founded the Summer Courses at the University of Salamanca in 1963, together with César Real de la Riva, and in 1973, he founded the Colegio de España. The Colegio de España is a leading institution in the Spanish Language Teaching, and was able to reach a high international prestige when the “Spanish Industry” was only a mirage.

José Luis de Celis Ullán was also a distinguished publisher: he was the founder and first president of the Gremio de Editores de Castilla y León, founder and director of Publishing House “Ambos Mundos”, and creator and director of the literary magazine “Cuadernos del Lazarillo”. We cannot forget his dedication to the Cultural Institution “Alfonso X, El Sabio, founded in 1970 and presided by him until his decease.
His hard work was rewarded by the following prizes: Victor Nacional de Bronce of the SEU, “Medalla al Mérito de la Cultura de Polonia” and posthumous “Salmantino del Año 2004”.
It is impossible to talk about Jose Luis without mentioning his profound love for nature, which led him to collaborate with many organizations dedicated to animal protection and the defense of environment.
