TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) -

Two colleges from different countries made a pact Tuesday that will allow students at both schools to better understand global culture.

Leaders from Texas A&M University in Texarkana, TX and Universidad Catolica de Pereira in the South American country of Columbia signed a cooperative agreement to exchange ideas and academic research.

"We all know one of the most important things for our students and our faculty is that we understand the global environment and the only way to do that is by knowing people from other countries," said TA&M President Emily Cutrer.

The partnership is an important step in expanding international opportunities for TA&M, Texarkana students, Cutrer said.
