The Center for International Education and Exchange at The University of Texas-Pan American will sponsor a panel discussion to educate Rio Grande Valley high school students about Muslim countries Friday, Nov. 30 at 9 a.m. at the Media Theater.

Organizers expect more than 350 students from nine Valley schools to attend the discussion, "Understanding Muslim Nations - People, Culture and Religion." The students also will be given a campus tour by Outreach and Recruitment Services and University student volunteers.

The second annual event is designed to broaden students' perspectives on Islamic customs and cultures in relation to current events. Speakers include international faculty, students and community members who will discuss their country, culture and religion.
