ASU's presence in Mexico leverages our capabilities to bring solutions to challenges on both sides of the border.

Why Mexico?

Building a strong and diverse relationship with Mexico allows Arizona State University the opportunity to gain perspective on regional challenges and to develop innovative, game-changing solutions to issues of importance to both sides of the border.

“We share a border and many common interests with Mexico. It’s natural that we seek stronger ties through education, research and innovation so we can help each other prepare for the challenges and the changing nature of the advanced workforce of the 21st century." Michael M. Crow, Arizona State University president
