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

Why ASU in 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.
