Olvera García said that these agreements will allow for professional academic exchanges, the development of research and other advanced studies, and will let university students conduct their social services and professional practices. The documents will also allow different academic and professional services such as mutual assistance, technical support, the exchange of bibliographic and audiovisual materials and access to databases, in order to strengthen academic services to support teaching and research.
Speaking to university and municipal officials, Olvera García recognized the efforts of State of Mexico Gov. Eruviel Ávila Villegas, because thanks to these agreements between institutions and their boost to public education, the UAEM is ranked among the best education institutions in the country.
