Hola! No walls in sport

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

The sports reg­u­la­tor for US uni­ver­si­ties has made his­tory by vot­ing to al­low Mex­i­can col­leges to ap­ply for mem­ber­ship with the or­gan­i­sa­tion for the first time. There are cur­rently five Mex­i­can in­sti­tu­tions with US ac­cred­i­ta­tion that will be able to ap­ply for Na­tional Col­le­giate Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion mem­ber­ship, al­low­ing stu­dents and those as­so­ci­ated to cross the bor­der for sports matches with US in­sti­tu­tions. The move fol­lows months of cam­paign­ing from the Cen­ter for Tech­ni­cal and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion (CETYS) Univer­sity, a pri­vate in­sti­tu­tion based in Baja Cal­i­for­nia, Mex­ico, which is set to be the first Us-ac­cred­ited Mex­i­can in­sti­tu­tion to join the NCAA.
