Friday, March 22, 2002 THE BATTALIOI Rescuers honored STUART VILLANUEVA BATTALION The Board of Regents honored 19 students involved in the rescue of five people in Galveston Bay last month. Students from Texas A&M and University of Texas sailing teams were preparing to race when a van plunged into the water and sank 10 feet Diving into the water and forming at assembly line, students pulled two adult women, two children and an infant from the van alive. Center Continued from page 1 Texas is the fourth largest exporter to the European Union, exporting $8.9 billion in goods, which supported more than 77,000 jobs in 1999. The center hopes to establish a closer working relationship with other European Unions across the nation. “We are interested in academics to better prepare the students coming out of our school for the future,” Laubsher said. “We hope to promote a greater understanding for Texas citizens and people throughout the United States by providing outreach activities and research.” Research performed by Texas A&M faculty, graduate students and visiting scholars will generate new insights into policy issues affecting the European Union and United States, he added. Research includes studies of interdisciplinary policy issues related to European integra tion and an annual symposium on policy issues affecting the United States and European Union rela tions. Speakers from the United States, Brussels, Belgium, Germany and France discussed the “US-EU Cooperation in the Aftermath of Sept. 11: Terrorism and Security" at the first center symposium, which took place at the Presidential Conference Center March 20 and 21. The center’s primary goal is to promote greater understanding of the European Union and related issues through curriculum develop ment, research and outreach. Assistant Director of the center Lucero Carranza told 77/c Battalion earlier this year. The center will work with the George Bush School of Government and Public Service, the Center for International Business Studies in the Lowry Mays College of Business and the Colleges of Agriculture, Architecture, Engineering and Liberal Arts. The center will also play a role in a new international business certifi cation program. “We hope to enhance academics between the EU and other EUs,” Laubsher said. “We hope that stu dents will be able to use this venue as well. Hopefully we’ll be able to help students to be better prepared for professional careers with other European Unions.” By Jarly planni ional Center roved by the ter will make onal efforts tc in biohazs icnses and so< J.S.
