The Office of SBS Mexico Initiatives was created in the fall of 2016 to consolidate collaborative efforts on the social and behavioral sciences with Mexico, its academic institutions, organizations, scholars, students, and communities. Our purpose is creating a strategic and sustainable plan for bi-national collaboration, and providing resources for SBS units, faculty, and students to facilitate joint research and scholarly activity.

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.
