About the Center for U.S.–Mexico Studies

The Center for U.S.–Mexico Studies was created in 1995 in response to UTD’s recognition of the richness of the Mexican-American relationship and history, as well as the importance of Mexico to the United States. The center strives to enhance the academic relationship between UTD and Mexico via international education, research and public service programs. Goals of the center are to provide curricula and exchange of faculty and students with Mexican universities, to conduct research and present lectures on issues of interest to both Mexico and the U.S. and to prepare individuals for leadership on critical business, political, scientific, technological and cultural issues of concern to both countries.
