Advancement of academic cooperation between South African and Mexican universities

The Chancellor (Rector) of Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM), Dr. Enrique Graue visited South Africa from the 6th until the 10th of July, 2016.

This event marked the first time, in the history of the bilateral relation, that a Chancellor from Mexico’s leading university visited South Africa. The visit will serve the advancement of academic cooperation between South African universities and Mexican higher education institutions.

Chancellor Graue signed general collaboration agreements between UNAM and the Universities of Pretoria, South Africa, Witwatersrand and Cape Town and met with the vice-chancellors of the aforementioned universities: Dr. Cheryl de la Rey, Prof. Mandla Makhanya, Dr. Adam Habib, and Dr. Max Price, respectively.

The agreements signed during the visit will serve to provide a general framework for the cooperation in joint research and academic mobility between these higher education institutions. Moreover, based on the priorities and strengths of these universities, specific areas of cooperation will be identified for the implementation of such agreements.

UNAM is Mexico’s academic powerhouse. It produces 50 % of Mexico’s entire academic research output and it represents the leading higher education institution in Mexico. With an enrolment of more than 340,000 students and over 38,000 faculty members, UNAM attracts and provides higher education for the largest share of students nationwide in several disciplines, comprising 116 undergraduate and 41 graduate programs.

Strengthening the engagement between UNAM and South African higher education institutions is of strategic importance, as UNAM’s internationalization is one of the top priorities of Chancellor Enrique Graue.

The academic collaboration between Mexican and South African higher education institutions will play a significant role in strengthening and deepening the ties of friendship and cooperation between Mexico and South Africa.
