UADY Global General Coordination of Cooperation and Internationalization UADY Global September2013 Volume 1, no. 1 UADY, within its effort to develop an institutional internationalization proyect, has created UADY Global with the purpose of incorporating under the same concept the many activities that the university is partaking in within its various substantive areas and functions; activities that may be of interest to foreign institutions so that they can establish academic partnerships and research through partnerships or strategic alliances. Similarly, UADY Global seeks to project to the university on a global level to acquire greater presence and visibility as an institution of social importance and relevance to local, regional, national and international. UADY Global acts as liaison between universities, students, researchers, and other organizations, that are found throughout the world and have an interest in the Autonomous University of Yucatán. Our main purpose is to provide the necessary information in a clear and concise manner, in at least the English language (besides Spanish), that users are looking for and strengthen and promote cooperation ties between UADY and international organizations. Our identity as a university project is reflected in our logo that imitates the union of two hands confirming our commitment to students, academics and other institutions worldwide. We want UADY Global to be an area of academic and cultural convergence, and that is why from September 2013 we are at your disposal through our webpage to continue strengthening the bonds of global cooperation that are already established and new opportunities academic and international research projects.

  2. 2. Country of the Month: Mexico Mexico is one of the countries with the largest cultural tourism in the world. The cultural, geographical and historical wealth of our country can be seen broadly through its tourist destinations, cuisine, architecture, traditions and everything that conform the people. Mexico has a vast supply of archaeological sites. Among these sites are amazing settlements such as Tulum, Chichen Itza, Palenque and Monte Alban, of which some are recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. You can enjoy the crafts produced in some of the cities in Mexico where the creation processes remains intact from centuries and that are transmitted from generation to generation. Similarly, you can admire the creations in black mud in Oaxaca, musical instruments in Paracho, Michoacan, leather goods in Guanajuato and colorful crafts of indigenous peoples such as the Huichol. Far and wide across the country are hundreds of places with their churches, municipal palaces and kiosks. You can admire the colonial architecture, historic buildings and libraries, silent witnesses of the development of the life of Mexico. Mexico has one of the richest cuisines in the world. Their proposals are different from region to region and pre-Hispanic ingredients fused with European influence brought by the Spaniards after the conquest. The Southeast of Mexico The Southeast Region of Mexico has great potential, with its 1338.14 Km of coast bathed by the Pacific Ocean and totaling over 2,600 by the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. The potential inherent in the coastal areas has specific and measurable benefits in areas such as tourism, logistics and commercial development. The development of this potential has resulted in the existence of important tourist destinations of Mexico to international markets such as Acapulco and Mayan Riviera. This region has a great geopolitical importance, its direct connection to Central America through Chiapas, and its backbone status among the states of North and South of Mexico, through the State of Puebla.
