BROWNSVILLE, Texas - Melinda Rodriguez, Vice President of the recently created Division of Institutional Advancement and Workforce Training, said the agreement will spark a dialog on how to serve the community on both sides of the border.
“It's the sharing of resources and also intellectual opportunities where perhaps they may have a certain level of experience in certain areas… We also bring those resources to the table so this really begins the opportunity for us to have that discussion with [Tamaulipas] and to explore how can we partner with one another to raise the educational attainment of our communities,” Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez said the partnership will provide the opportunity to create workshops, exchanges of personnel and instructors.
Texas Southmost College Interim President Mike Shannon and Tamualipas Secretary of Education Hector Esocobar Salazar signed the agreement to collaborate today at the TSC Arts Center.
Present was TSC Board of Trustees, the Consul of Mexico, and a Texas-Tamaulipas Trade Office Representative.
