Purdue to collaborate with two Colombian universities

May 29, 2013

Two Colombian Universities are partnering with Purdue to give students a multicultural learning experience.

This week, students from the Technological University of Pereira and the University of Caldas are visiting West Lafayette.

This comes after a group of Purdue undergraduates went to Colombia to study farm production in the contexts of food security and climate change.

Now, students have formed groups to describe their findings in final presentations in both English and Spanish.

The presentations mark the end of a joint course with students and professors from the three universities.

Purdue officials hope the project continues into the future, and that it is expanded with more courses and additional partners in Latin America.
