In addition to the core and outreach programming, The Mexico Institute acts as both a clearinghouse for information, expertise, and as a “connecting agent” among U.S., Mexican and Latin American entities, media, corporations, academic and cultural institutions. A significant portion of time is devoted to no-fee public services such as the following requests:
Providing assistance to KERA-TV for its “The U.S.-Mexico War,” a national prime time PBS Special. An estimated 17,860,000 persons in the U.S saw it.
Organizing educational trips to Mexico. Attendance is approximately 30 people per trip.
