About the Program

The Program for Transborder Communities (PTC) began July 2014 as a long-term research and outreach initiative of the ASU School of Transborder Studies. The program is designed to expand the knowledge and understanding of borders, borderlands, and communities along the U.S.-Mexico border and other border regions in the world.
