    Our Mission

    The CUNY Mexican Studies Institute seeks to boost enrollment of Mexican and Mexican-American students, foster research with and about Mexico and Mexicans in the United States and collaborate with community-based organization to support and empower the Mexican immigrant community. With a special focus on Mexicans in the diaspora, especially Mexicans in New York City. The Institute offers a space for the Mexican community to consider its own and an institutional location for support of scholarly and community advocacy projects.

 

 

    Message to the Community regarding DACA

    Dear friends,

    As we await the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the DACA program, the CUNY Mexican Studies Institute continues its long trajectory of standing with DACA recipients.

    Despite the constant attacks that our immigrant communities face, our students have proven to be high-achieving and productive members in our society.

    We are aware that the decision will be made until next year, however, we want to reiterate that the Mexican Studies Institute remains committed to ensuring that CUNY-wide we provide a safe and supportive environment to everyone. 

    We commend our current students and alumni, especially those who have been in the frontlines fighting for immigrant rights, for their efforts in this regard.

    We also invite our network of friends, students, faculty, and staff to continue sharing the resources available at Lehman College open to all members of the community. The New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) provides free information and legal consultations for all immigrants, to assess eligibility for all immigration relief options.

    Sincerely,

    José Higuera López
    Deputy Director and the team at the CUNY Mexican Studies Institute.
