Meeting with U.S. Embassy


Tuesday, April 26, 2022


Explore ideas that can help build student exchange programs with different UC campuses.

Promote and expand faculty-led short-term visits (e.g., UC Davis-IPN and UNAM-UC joint online courses; summer course at CETYS).

One of our main goals at UC Alianza MX is to promote binational understanding and support opportunities for US-Mexico exchange. We look forward to working closely with the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City to increase opportunities for binational collaboration through student exchange programs, faculty-led short term mobilities, amongst others.
