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:

  • The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)
  • The Mexican Council on Science & Technology (CONACYT)
  • The U.S.-Mexico Fulbright Commission (COMEXUS)
  • Mexican Association for International Education (AMPEI)
  • Tec de Monterrey
  • Universidad Iberoamericana
  • Universidad de las Americas – Puebla (UDLAP)
  • The federal Ministry of Education (SEP)
  • The State of Puebla

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.

When contemplating work or travel to Mexico, we encourage you to be in touch with us first. Centrally located, with easy access to all parts of Mexico City, the SUNY Mexico Office can be your in-country office, with desks, phones and WiFi. See you soon! ¡Hasta pronto!

SUNY has been successful in recent years in the development of dual diploma programs between SUNY campuses and universities abroad at the undergraduate and graduate levels. These programs integrate the degree curriculum from a SUNY campus with an international partner, students spend up to half of their study at each university, and when they complete the program they receive two diplomas, one from each of the partners. Dual Diploma programs are proving to be a significant and desirable form of international education that provides students a sound curriculum, a rich international experience, and the enhanced credentials of diplomas from two universities.

Graphic Design:
Purchase College - Universidad Iberoamericana (UIA)
In September 2005, Chancellor John R. Ryan joined President Thomas Schwartz of SUNY Purchase and Rector Jose Morales Orozco of the Universidad Iberoamericana (UIA) in Mexico City in Purchase where they signed an agreement establishing a new dual diploma undergraduate program in Graphic Design. Students will begin to enroll in this program in fall 2006. They will divide the fours years of their undergraduate study between Purchase College and UIA.

International Relations:
SUNY Geneseo - Universidad de las Americas (UDLA)
In March 2006, Rector Pedro Ángel Palou of the University of the Americas in Puebla, Mexico visited President Christopher Dahl of SUNY College at Geneseo. They were joined by Chancellor John R.
