Indiana University’s Mexico Gateway, located in Mexico City, is pleased to welcome Professor J. César Félix-Brasdefer as the new academic director. Based in Bloomington, he joins the IU Mexico Gateway team to further our gateway’s mission to support IU faculty, staff, students, alumni, and partners to advance their academic and professional interests in Mexico, the Caribbean, Central, and South America.
Indiana University, across its campuses, has a broad range of faculty, students, and alumni engaged in interdisciplinary research and creative activity in the sciences, medicine, arts and humanities, education, business, public health, and environmental affairs, among other disciplines. I am excited to help connect IU faculty and students with fellow experts in their fields and promote collaboration in institutions of higher education in Mexico, the Caribbean, as well as Central and South America. With Spanish and Portuguese as global languages, I look forward to expanding IU’s internationalization mission with other gateways, fostering awareness of linguistic diversity among indigenous languages, strengthening the visibility of IU faculty, and promoting student mobility throughout Latin America. I am thrilled to work with the professional and knowledgeable staff at the IU Mexico gateway.J. César Félix-Brasdefer
