From 3 to 13 July 2016, 63 undergraduate students from Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States participated in the APRU 9th Undergraduate Leaders’ Program (ULP) hosted by the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (Tecnológico de Monterrey) on its Puebla Campus in Mexico.

Themed “INSPIRE: Next generation of innovators”, this exciting 10-day program enabled students from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds to develop the skills to provide innovative solutions to real problems of global relevance while gaining new perspectives of co-creation in a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural context.

Innovative activities and challenges including master classes by community leaders, theme-related lectures, seminars and workshops, field work, history and art classes and cultural excursions were tailor-made for students. At the end of the program, students were challenged to come up with innovative solutions to the real-life problems of the local San Pedro Puebla Cholula community.

Formerly known as the Undergraduate Summer Program, ULP aims at harnessing the leadership potential of student leaders by helping them to elaborate their creativity. The ULP 2016 is the first one held outside Asia since it was held in 2006.
