Welcome to the 2017 Conference of the International Association of Methodist-related Schools, Colleges, and Universities (IAMSCU)!

It is my great pleasure to invite and welcome you to the upcoming IAMSCU Conference, to be held at the Universidad Madero in Puebla, Mexico, on May 27-31, 2017. After many years, IAMSCU is returning to Latin America. Past IAMSCU conferences held in Latin American were in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1996), and Rosario, Argentina (2008). We then had other countries as our hosts, with conferences in Washington, DC, United States (2011), and Hiroshima, Japan (2014).

The city of Puebla and Universidad Madero will host this important meeting, which will address key themes of interest to Methodist-related institutions around the world: Peace, Well-Being, Human Rights, Dignity, Healing, and other topics that inspire us to build bridges among our various cultures, instead of erecting walls that separate us. Continuing the tradition of John Wesley, we will get together and seek to “unite knowledge and vital piety” as tools that enable us to build a better world for all. Additional meetings are being organized around this event, including a cluster of activities such as a Student Program, Pre-Conference Seminars, training activities, exhibitions and cultural activities, as well as the opportunity to meet and establish contacts with other individuals and institutions.

You can register for the Conference on the website http://www.iamscuconferencemexico2017.mx.  I also encourage you to contact iamscu@gbhem.org to renew your IAMSCU membership and pay your dues, so you and your institution can make use of the various opportunities offered by IAMSCU, including publications, exchange programs, conferences, discounts, and many more.

This is the most important gathering in Methodist education and we will be at the site of the oldest Methodist school in Latin America. I expect many international visitors, so renew your passport, get your Visa, book your flight, and register soon! I look forward to seeing you in the land of Aztec pyramids, stunning colonial churches, a long history as a center of Christianity in Latin America, wonderful nature, beautiful Talavera pottery, great food, and amazing hospitality!

Again, welcome to the IAMSCU Conference in Puebla, Mexico.
