New leadership at the Tec de Monterrey was committed to positioning the Tec as a catalyst for regeneration of higher education and of the connections between universities, their communities, and the national economy. As the flagship of a 31-campus system, Monterrey could stimulate nationwide integrated planning. The master plan focuses on a commitment to foster a climate of entrepreneurship, stimulate engaged learning, re-engage with the neighborhood and the city, and facilitate rapid growth of research partnerships, which has had a transformative impact on the Mexican education system, economy, and culture.
