The Mexico Center of LLILAS Benson, founded by Professor Bryan Roberts in 1980, is one of the foremost centers for the study of Mexico in the United States. Its mission is to promote greater knowledge and understanding of Mexico and to coordinate the advancement of Mexican studies at the University of Texas at Austin.

According to Professor Ainslie, who assume directorship of the Mexico Center in January 2017, the aim is to align with UT President Greg Fenves' expansion of scholarly exchange with Mexico in hopes of building a new and creative partnership between The University of Texas at Austin and Mexico's leading universities. Read more about Professor Ainslie's appointment at Professor Ricard Ainslie to Lead Mexico Center.

The Mexico Center brings together students and faculty, visiting researchers, and the communities of Austin, Texas, and Mexico to foster a fuller understanding of the region.

Recent developments in our scholarly collaboration with Mexico include the updating of the Matías Romero Visiting Scholars Program and the establishment of the Marcela Lagarde y de los Ríos Program for the Study of Gender Violence.
