SAU signs historic pact with Cuban university

MAGNOLIA -- Southern Arkansas University participated in a historic exchange agreement with the University of Artemisa when it hosted three Cuban nationals Aug. 5-12.

Trey Berry, president of SAU, and Carlos Eduardo Suarez Ponciano, rector or president of the Artemisa, formalized the exchange in a signing ceremony Wednesday in the rotunda of the state Capitol in Little Rock.

A new mural will be painted on the large planter between Nelson Hall and Harton Theatre. It will complement a mural painted at Artemisa by Steven Ochs, SAU professor of art, and art student Veronica Ramirez, who visited the university along with Honors College Director Ed Kardas in November.

Berry said SAU is the first university in Arkansas to create an exchange program with a university in Cuba.
