Engagement with Mexico is part of the institutional fabric at the University of Arizona. Cross-border collaboration has been a part of the education, research and service mission of this Land Grant institution since the University's foundation in 1885.
Since taking office in June 2017, President Robert C. Robbins has led the University of Arizona's engagement with Mexico by reinforcing the institutional commitment to our partners through his leadership. In that time, President Robbins has led four delegations to Mexico, two to Mexico City and one each to Hermosillo and Nogales, Sonora, and hosted many important visits including the Ambassador of Mexico to the United States, Her Excellency Martha Bárcena Coqui, reaffirming the University of Arizona's commitment to work collaboratively across borders to solve the grand challenges facing our shared region.
