SAN ANTONIO - The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) has opened a campus in Irapuato, Mexico, in the state of Guanajuato, UIW's second academic site south of the border.

Guanajuato is an important hub for the automobile industry, including General Motors, Mazda, Honda, Toyota, Pirelli, Volkswagen and Ford. Other important industrial sectors are food, textile and footwear manufacturing, with companies such as Conagra, Procter & Gamble, Nestlé, Nike and Florsheim having a presence.

With the opening, UIW is the only American university with two campuses in Mexico, according to the Border Education Research Team at the State University of New York at Albany.

In 2016, UIW plans to add six bachelor's and two master’s degree programs, which will be dual degrees accredited in Mexico and the United States.

UIW began operating the campus June 1, 2015 in the facilities of Universidad Liceo Cervantino. UIW acquired two facilities: a historic property in downtown Irapuato and a 44.5-acre site near the Pan American Hwy.
