12 Days Countdown–12/4/2012.

Text by Lynn McDaniel.

Texas A&M University is proud of its Texas heritage, but it’s so much more than just a Lone Star University. Texas A&M University at Qatar has an enrollment of more than 350 engineering students from more than 20 countries. A&M also provides educational opportunities at the Texas A&M Facility in Mexico City, Mexico, at the Soltis Center for Research and Education in San Isidro, Costa Rica and at the Santa Chiara Study Center in Santa Chiara, Italy! Courses vary at each of the four A&M study centers, but they provide students the opportunity to learn about different cultures, different languages, and different world perspectives.

“It’s one body. We’re all students, faculty and staff; we all care about each other. The success of this place is the success of ourselves.”

Texas A&M is proud to embrace diversity and to recognize the rights of every individual. It is only after we get to know and understand each other’s differences that we discover deep down, we’re all the same.cameo

In keeping with Texas A&M’s leadership in forging a global vision, the Forsyth Galleries is constantly seeking ways to make our guests from all countries feel welcome in our galleries.  Although the Forsyth Galleries’ core collection is primarily comprised of English Cameo Glass and American paintings, cameo glass actually has a rich cultural heritage. One of the Forsyth’s goals for the upcoming year is to explore the history and influence Asia, India and other countries had on the development of cameo glass, as well as on other types of pieces in our collection. We will be inviting guest speakers and developing programming to bring a variety of cultures into the galleries, using art as the universal language.

We invite you to join us!
