Every year, the New York University graduate students compose a Capstone Program while partnered with a variety of resources: from nonprofits, to government agencies, to health institutions, among others. This Capstone brings together teams of NYU Wagner graduate students with client organizations over an academic year. Siembra Azul Foundation and Universidad de Guadalajara were selected for a Capstone with NYU Wagner Students for 2009 on the impact of transnationals in the tequila industry and culture.
During one of the Project meetings, the team conversed with Princeton Univeristy Professor Douglass Massey regarding visible changes in migration trends of Jimadores and other Mexican workers. The group sat for nearly an hour with Douglass Massey examining all possible options regarding where to focus their field work. Click here for more information.
