We are delighted to announce the launch of the Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute. Approved on Feb 27, 2012 by the CUNY Board of Trustees and launched with a conference on May 11 and festive launch on June 26, the Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute, is based at Lehman College. It is the culmination of nearly a decade of work by faculty, administrators, staff, and students to boost enrollment of Mexican and Mexican-American students, foster research with and about Mexico and Mexicans in the United States, foster research and curricular development, and collaborate with community-based organizations to support and empower the Mexican immigrant community.
The Institute will build on CUNY’s historic relationship with the General Consulate of Mexico in New York and the many community organizations that work closely with the University.
