In 2006, a group of North Carolina school teachers and leaders traveled with CIU to Mexico to exploresallymex06 the culture, history, and education systems of Mexico, a strategic economic and education partner of North Carolina’s. Then, you returned to your schools energized to teach students about 95% of the world that lies beyond U.S. borders.

Teachers call CIU programs “the best professional development experience of my life!” We hope you feel the same and will continue your Mexico experience and learning on this site! We invite you to connect with fellow alumni, to seek and share resources including lesson plans and latest findings in the education field, and to start a conversation about your victories and challenges in the classroom.
