Mohammed VI Polytechnic University's School of Agriculture, Fertilization and Environmental Sciences (ESAFE) and Texas A&M University's AgriLife and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences form “ENGAGE: Leadership in a Virtual World,” a collaborative seven-week virtual exchange program that introduces participants to international intercultural competencies through a variety of group assignments with agricultural and non-agricultural leadership themes.

Through these facilitated dialogues and intentional activities, participants develop critical skills that are relevant in today’s global workforce.
