Texas A&M University has one of the most sustained efforts among university collections to accumulate insect material from Mexico. Texas A&M systematists have participated in numerous cooperative activities with Mexican entomologists, many of whom have visited the collection to pursue joint or individual research projects. Texas A&M and Mexican systematists have conducted joint workshops on various aspects of the Mexican fauna and on methods for studying insect biodiversity.
Gabriel Eckstein, professor at Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth, and Rosario Sanchez Flores, Program Coordinator at Texas A&M University’s Department of Water Management and Hydrological Science in College Station, have teamed up to create opportunities for increased cooperation between Texas and Mexico to share water resources and lessen the impact of the drought.

In March 2015, the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) was inducted into the Yucatán’s research consortium, SIIDETEY, to expand research collaborations. Currently, there are about 20 faculty in College Station and 20 in Yucatán working on projects in the areas of sustainable energy, aquifers, coastal dynamics, early warning systems and logistics/supply chain management. TEES is also in the process of expanding collaboration opportunities among other Texas A&M System members.
Since 1991, when the Texas Legislature created the Colonias program, Texas A&M’s University's College of Architecture has been engaged with people of these Texas-Mexico border communities, helping them to build better lives through the conception, development, and delivery of integrated, sustainable, scalable, flexible, evidence-based, outcome-driven, and technology enabled solutions.
