A new agreement between Texas A&M University-Kingsville and the Universidad Autonoma de Coahuila will provide joint research ventures and student and faculty exchange and cooperation in addition to intensive English and Spanish programs, said Dr. W. Frank Hull IV, A&M-Kingsville director of international studies and programs.

Dr. Rumaldo Z. Juárez, president of Texas A&M-Kingsville, recently traveled to the university in Saltillo, Mexico to join Rector Mario Ochoa in signing the agreement that will be beneficial to both universities. Universidad Autonoma de Coahuila is a public university of 46,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

“This agreement is not just between two universities. It is more than that. It brings together two regions and two states,” Juárez said. “It unites distinguished researchers and high-achieving students from both sides of the border to address issues that affect both regions, and it will allow for an exchange of ideas between two cultures.”

Hull said the agreement will provide increased options for A&M-Kingsville students, staff and faculty to study intensive Spanish and their Mexican counterparts to study intensive English.

Working committees have already been formed and follow-up meetings with the deans of education, arts and sciences and graduate studies have been scheduled in McAllen to insure this joint venture succeeds.

“We are working on a scholarship to bring high-achieving Mexican undergraduate students to A&M-Kingsville as we increase regional and cross-border research, exchange, cooperation and understanding,” Hull said.
