Mexico :: History
Office in Mexico and activitites
SUNY´s Mexico office opened its doors in 2004. Since that time, the SUNY Mexico team has helped create new and diverse programs and research opportunities for campuses and helped move students, faculty and researchers between the two countries. SUNY Mexico works directly with all four of SUNY´s University Centers, several more doctoral degree-granting institutions, nearly all 13 University Colleges and a growing list of Community Colleges and Technology Colleges.
Key SUNY relationships in Mexico include:
SUNY Mexico also serves the Office of International Programs as a bridge to programs in Latin America, such as the Brazil “Science without Borders” initiative and it has opened new streams of intensive English students to the SUNY system.

In 1998, the Center for International Development (CID) of the State University of New York (SUNY) began an important relationship with the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. This occurred under SUNY's five-year legislative strengthening program in Mexico, funded by the United States Association for International Development (USAID). Visits to Mexico by then-Chancellor Robert King and Ambassador Robert Gosende led to the development of a deepening relationship between SUNY's office in Mexico and the Embassy's Cultural Section. When USAID funding ceased in December 2003, SUNY's Office of International Programs (OIP) took over the operations of the Mexico office, dedicated to forging ties between SUNY and key Mexican universities and institutions.
