  • Laura Ruiz Education for Development Director at the Virtual University at Tec de Monterrey in Mexico

The Community Learning Center Initiative at Tec de Monterrey, Mexico, was born out of the desire to deliver education to Nuevo León’s isolated communities. Thanks to the Virtual University, it has now become an instrument not only for bridging the digital divide, but it is also driving the educational, social, and economic equality in a model which transcends borders. The learning centers flourish throughout Latin America and the United States. Moderator: Jorge Atilles, Oklahoma State University
