Marlboro Collaborates with Mexican University

President Kevin and Dean of Faculty Richard Glejzer sport UASLP T-shirts to celebrate Marlboro’s first partnership with a university in Latin America.In May, Marlboro College signed a collaboration agreement with the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (UASLP), in central Mexico, for academic and research exchanges. The agreement will ensure that future students and faculty from each institution can spend time at the other to conduct research and take courses in their areas of interest.

“The city of San Luis Potosi is a jewel of the Baroque period, and our students will love walking around the plazas and exploring the different natural and geological regions in the area,” says Rosario de Swanson, professor of Spanish language and literature, who was instrumental in making the UASLP agreement a reality. She also found that, like Marlboro, UASLP values interdisciplinary perspectives and curricular innovation. They also offer several programs unavailable at Marlboro, including geography, archaeology, and paleontology.

“This exchange agreement with UASLP offers another exciting opportunity for students to study off the hill,” says Richard Glejzer, provost and dean of faculty. “We have three exchange programs in Europe now (Germany, Czech Republic, and Slovakia) and one in China—this will be our first in Latin America.” Learn more.
