Universidad Autonoma de Baja California
UC San Diego Extension welcomes the recent announcement that UC San Diego has entered into an initiative with the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California, Mexico (UABC) to increase collaboration and exchange among students and faculty from both universities.
The five-year initiative was formalized by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla and UABC President Felipe Cuamea Velazquez.
As planned, UC San Diego’s collaboration with UABC will include any desirable and feasible activity to foster cooperation between both institutions. UABC has campuses in Tijuana, Ensenada, and Mexicali.
Such interaction may include: exchanges of faculty; exchanges of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars; joint research projects and publications; exchanges of publications, materials and information; and special short-term programs and visits.
“As the continuing education arm of the university, we are eager to find ways to be an active participant in this exciting bi-national partnership,” said Extension dean Mary Walshok. “The initiative can further broaden the growing outreach of our successful international programs.”
