About the Borderlands Institute
The SDSU-IVC Borderlands Institute was founded in August 2013 to promote border-related scholarship and activities relevant to the Imperial, Mexicali, and Yuma Valleys. The Institute fosters the University’s role as an active participant in the trans-border community, sponsors academic conferences and public lectures, hosts visiting scholars, and coordinates cultural exchange programs with Mexican Institutions.
