The Educational Horizon Shifts South for U.S. Border Colleges.
Garcia, James E.
Black Issues in Higher Education, v14 n1 p8-9 Mar 6 1997

The rush for cross-border collaboration (exchange programs, sabbaticals, cultural tours, enhanced foreign language programs) is trade-oriented, and the definition of "community" has expanded. (MSE)
