SBS Mexico Initiatives (General Donation Fund)
The Office of SBS Mexico Initiatives was created in the fall of 2016 to create a sustainable plan for bi-national collaboration, and provide resources for SBS units, faculty, and students to facilitate joint research and scholarly activity on the social and behavioral sciences with Mexico. We focus on collaborative research/outreach, student recruitment, and assisting with curriculum design on Mexico. We also provide spaces to think and discuss broadly on the impact of social sciences in Mexico and the United States, to celebrate shared cultural heritages and populations, and to promote awareness on issues of mutual importance.
