For over half a century, CETYS has contributed to the development of human capital and well-grounded individuals, agents of change that strengthen the competitiveness of the region, raise the quality of life, and improve the social fabric of those living along the Mexico-US border. Through this presentation, CETYS President will share the experience of an institution that has evolved from a continued education provider to one involved in graduate programs tailored to specific industry clusters, joint research projects, corporate linkage activities, and service learning programs, all robust examples of community engagement. CETYS impact beyond Mexico is complemented with its commitment to serving U.S. citizens from the Southern California region –as well as DACA students- through U.S. accredited programs and by offering financial aid (FAFSA) and support. This has consolidated CETYS reach and impact on the neighboring communities of Southern California and represents an example of rich and meaningful engagement.
