Eighteen engineering students from CETYS (Center for Technical and Higher Education) University in Mexico visited The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley for a weeklong visit with the Department of Engineering to learn about American higher education in their field.

Over 600 staff members were recognized for their years of dedicated service at the first annual UTRGV Staff Service Awards and Recognition ceremonies. The Edinburg ceremony took place at the PlainsCapital Bank Theater in the Student Union on May 15 and on the Brownsville campus at the PlainsCapital Bank El Gran Salón on May 16. Staff members were recognized for their service in increments of five years, starting with 5 years to 40 years as of the transition phase from two legacy institutions to present day UTRGV, up to August 31, 2017.
