Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) Rector Jorge Olvera García met with the Consul-General of Mexico in Dallas Francisco de la Torre Galindo as part of the UAEM’s internationalization project. The goal of the project is to promote enrollment to the Migrant Distance High School in the United States and strengthen the work with the Mexicans Abroad Institute.
As part of this meeting, Olvera García proposed to create better conditions for the Mexican migrant population in Dallas by building a digital library with the support of State of Mexico Gov. Eruviel Ávila Villegas.
Olvera García and De la Torre Galindo agreed to continue strengthening the partnership between the UAEM and the Consulate-General of Mexico in Dallas through bilateral cultural exchanges, which will allow to publicize the work of UAEM graduates such as sculptor Leopoldo Flores Valdés.
In addition, Olvera García requested support from De la Torre Galindo so that the 37 UAEM students and teachers who will participate in a summer stay in Texas from July 7 to August can participate in community service actions to help migrants from the State of Mexico and establish a working agenda with this community.
