On December 3, 2008, the University of Guadalajara and the Worldwide Consortium for Research on Mexico (PROFMEX) of the University of California renewed a collaboration agreement which will strengthen academic and research relations between both institutions.
This agreement, whose first version was signed in 2005, will enable the University of Guadalajara to develop one of its most important international projects: the creation of a campus in Los Angeles. Through this agreement, both institutions will cooperate in the organization of seminars, conferences, academic exchanges, research and joint publications.
"This agreement will give us access to the research that the consortium has done on Mexico, which may serve as a springboard for more thorough studies of the politics, culture, economy and social environment of the United States," said University of Guadalajara rector Marco Antonio Cortés Guardado, who signed the agreement jointly with PROFMEX chairman James Wilkie.
