¡Vamos a Puebla!

Very Interested in Puebla (VIP) Program

March 18-22, 2015


Join us on a “Very Interested in Puebla (VIP) Mission”, generously hosted by 6 of the top higher education institutions in the Puebla, Mexico and with the financial support of the City and State of Puebla and the US Embassy in Mexico which will take place from March 18-22, 2015. Come share with colleagues and learn about Puebla, Mexico's higher education system and key institutions and players. This is a unique opportunity to see what these institutions have to offer and share with them your own institution's strengths to deepen existing relationships and establish new initiatives. Due to the heavily subsidized nature of this activity, we ask that only institutions with a strong interest and likelihood of collaborating with Puebla's higher education institutions register for this event. Participants should plan to attend all 4 days of the program to get the full benefit of the visit. This activity is being supported by the Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC)'s Mobility Incubator Program.

Registration has closed. Please check our website for future mobility incubator programs.  


Participants should arrive on March 18th to either Mexico City or Puebla City.

Arrival in Mexico City

A shuttle service will be provided at the Mexico City airport at 3.00 p.m. on March 18th. Participants that decide to arrive earlier can either wait for the 3pm shuttle or be directed by one of our staff members and interns to the bus terminal located inside the terminal of the airport. Participants arriving after 3 p.m. should take the shuttle from the airport to Puebla City. The cost of the bus ticket will be reimbursed in exchange for the receipt (bus ticket).

Arrival in Puebla City

Participants can also choose to land in Puebla City (Aeropuerto de Huejotzingo). A shuttle will be leaving the arrivals terminal at 8 p.m. and participants will be taken to the hotel for check in. Participants are invited to fly back to the U.S. or Canada from Puebla City. There are two early flights leaving on Sunday morning to Texas. A shuttle service will be organized from the hotel to the airport in Puebla City.

Return logistics:

If a participant decides to fly back from Mexico City the program will provide orientation for bus schedules but will not be able to reimburse the cost of the ride as we will not be able to keep the receipt. The cost of the airport shuttle from Puebla to the Mexico City airport is about 20 USD.
