At the invitation of Mexican President Vicente Fox, UNM faculty traveled to the Presidential Residence of Los Pinos in Mexico City to witness the signing into law of the Consejo Nacional para las Comunidades Mexicanas en el Exterior (National Council for Mexican Communities Abroad).

Attending from New Mexico was Federal Judge Martha Vasquez, UNM Regents’ Professor Guillermina Engelbrecht, UNM Associate Professor Rebecca Blum-Martinez and UNM doctoral student Anselmo Torres Arizmendi, all of the College of Education. Torres is president of the UNM Mexican Student Association.

“Our role will be to provide input into the policies developed by the council as well as to help define the role of the Institute for Mexican Communities Abroad, which will be the executive organism that will implement policies developed and negotiated by the council,” said Engelbrecht of UNM’s involvement.
