We joined SDSU President Adela de la Torre during her two day agenda in Tijuana which included a breakfast hosted by U.S. Consul General Sue Saarnio with female leaders in business, education, science, human rights to discuss the future of leadership and binational collaboration. President de la Torre also met with the Mayor of Tijuana and the city’s Under Secretary of Education. As a result of the various meetings, a two day conference is in the works for 2019 with one day taking place at SDSU and the second in Tijuana.
Our region benefits from deep collaborative ties across organizations and sectors. We are home to nine academic institutions with cross-border agreements, including exchange programs for students, staff and faculty, double diploma programs, and joint research teams. We are fortunate to have these existing partnerships which enables us to focus on strengthening ties and specific initiatives.
