FY 1995-1996 Projects

The Program for North American Mobility in Higher Education supports institutional cooperation and student exchange among institutions of higher education in the United States, Mexico and Canada. The program is jointly sponsored and administered by the U.S., Mexican and Canadian governments and provides funding to trilateral consortia of institutions. The primary objective of the initiative is to find new ways to prepare students for participation in the greater North American community. The program supports projects in a wide range of disciplines, with an emphasis on professional fields. Project activities include, among others, trilateral faculty collaboration on curriculum development and credit recognition, language preparation, student academic exchanges and foreign internships.
