NMSU and UTSA partner with Fish and Wildlife Service on ‘historic’ agreement

New Mexico State University has joined forces with the University of Texas at San Antonio and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service to create a national consortium to help advance underrepresented students pursuing careers in the natural resources.

The two universities entered into a formal agreement with the federal agency during a virtual signing ceremony on April 11.

The event brought together dignitaries from NMSU, UTSA and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, including Martha Williams, the new US Fish and Wildlife Service director. NMSU Chancellor Dan Arvizu, interim provost Dorothy Campbell, Rolando A. Flores Galarza, dean of the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, and others from NMSU participated in the ceremony.

The agreement sets the stage for the two institutions to work with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to increase workplace diversity in the natural resources and environmental sciences fields through collaborations.
