University of Arizona signs agreement with MexicoBy Valeria Bigurra Peñavera
The University of Arizona (UA) announced the signing of an agreement with the National Association of Polytechnic Universities (ANUP) of Mexico, with the objective of taking more Mexicans to study or research in Tucson.
Mike Proctor, VP of global initiatives of the UA, said that with this agreement they managed to advance their status as an institutional partner, fully reliable and supportive of higher education in Mexico.
This agreement is aimed to motivate students from rural areas of Mexico who are interested in high-tech disciplines to carry out their studies in the United States.
Nadia Mexia Alvares, director of the Office of collaborative initiatives with Latin America (OLAPI) of the UA said they are very fortunate to be so close to Mexico, because this way it is easier for them to encourage partnerships of the sort.
She also said that this agreement will help students study at a university with advanced technology, and that will help them to gain more opportunities in the future.
This agreement will expand the collaboration of the University of Arizona with higher education institutions in Mexico and in other countries. Plus it will support with research stays for students and promote cooperation for the creation and development of research projects.
The director of the OLAPI also explained that access to high-level education in Mexico has historically been reserved for those individuals who come from a higher socioeconomic level, and with this opportunity, they mean for education to be more accessible for anyone who wants and deserves it.
Mexico has recently experienced a strong influence of countries like Korea and Japan, who have recently arrived in the country with their businesses, creating new job opportunities, which has created the need to prepare future workers with the capacity to compete globally.
