New Effort Promotes Study Abroad in Mexico

November 21, 2016

Officials from a group of North American universities -- led by the University of Arizona -- released a report with recommendations to encourage more students to seek study abroad programs in Mexico. While study abroad from the United States to Mexico grew by 6 percent, to 4,712 students, in 2014-15, the report suggests this number could be much higher. At least part of the problem, the report says, is that State Department safety advisories about dangers in parts of Mexico scare off colleges and students from programs in parts of the country that are quite safe.
