The University of Texas at Austin – Mexico Institute A.C.
In 2017, the University of Texas System Board of Regents approved UT Austin’s formation of a Mexican nonprofit (Asociacion Civil A.C.). This A.C., known as the University of Texas at Austin – Mexico Institute A.C., is also registered as a Mexican Academic and Research Institution with Mexico’s Registro Nacional de Instituciones y Empresas Científicas y Tecnológicas (RENIECYT), which facilitates UT Austin's faculty members and researchers to pursue collaborations with Mexican educational and scientific organizations that have areas of common interest and similar aims.
