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

It is no secret that trade policy has been a major priority for U.S. policymakers, business owners and workers this summer. At the top of the agenda is the United States-Canada-Mexico Agreement. If passed, the USMCA will bring much-needed certainty and help ensure continued growth for businesses in Arizona and across the country. Last November, leaders from the U.S., Mexico and Canada signed this new agreement to update existing rules put into place under the North American Free Trade Agreement. While NAFTA strengthened regional trade significantly when it was ratified nearly three decades ago and has resulted in stronger economic growth across North America – as demonstrated by the surge in cross-border investments and a tripling of U.S. trade with Canada and Mexico – it has become increasingly out-of-date and doesn’t address today’s needs for commerce and trade.
