CSU Stanislaus Establishes Partnership with Mexico

Dr. Marvalene Hughes, President of California State University, Stanislaus, and President Rodrigo Guerra of the Universidad Regiomontana of Mexico, signed an agreement today that will focus on new exchange opportunities between the two institutions.

Representatives of CSU Stanislaus, the Stanislaus County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Stanislaus County met with Universidad Regiomontana leaders during a trip to Monterrey last fall.

"The desire of CSU Stanislaus in entering this partnership is to enhance the opportunities of our faculty and students for education, Spanish immersion, internships, and lecturing opportunities," said Linda-Bunney Sarhad, director of Global Affairs.

The Universidad Regiomontana, located in Monterrey, is a top industrial and economic center in Mexico, which has one of the world's fastest growing economies. The modern university has extensive economic and trade connections that can provide valuable learning opportunities for students in the CSU Stanislaus College of Business Administration. Other prospective University department participants in the exchange include Economics, Communication Studies, and Ethnic Studies.

CSU Stanislaus currently has three programs in Mexico. University students study Spanish and the history of Mexico in Cuernavaca during the winter term in January. Two other programs are in Monterrey's Instituto Tecnologico et de Estudios Superiores, and Puebla's Universidad Ibero-Americana.
