About UMA

Our Mission Statement:

To propel a regenerative, sustainable and ethical future, forming agents of change , capable of promoting initiatives that transform social and environmental systems.

How did it come about?

The dream was born 10 years ago with a concerned group of young people from Mexico that recognized the enormous importance of creating a space for learning, to deal with the social and environmental challenges; in Latin America. In turning dream to reality, we have been joined by hundreds of specialists, educators, change agents and entrepreneurs for the development of an educational model that provides the know how to re-design our system. Initially, we founded the Environmental Investigation and Learning Center (CIAMA) under which we have the official registers of our present Master’s Degree Programs. Furthering the process with CIAMA, we created the University of the Environment (Universidad del Medio Ambiente or UMA), through which we have designed additional Master’s Degree Programs. These programs allow us to cover diverse knowledge areas, enabling us to form a University Community . The UMA is the only university in the country specialized in sustainability, and the only unique space to promote projects of socio-environmental impact.

What we do?

We offer Master’s Degree Programs, workshops, diplomas and consulting services focusing on the sustainability and regeneration of social and environmental issues. Our main value is the creation of a point of union to accelerate the learning process between students, specialists and leaders in sustainability. When you visit us, you will encounter an inspiring experience of connecting with a learning community that is active in changing our world for the better.
