New Mexico

Southwest SSN brings together a group of scholars from New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. Members marshal their own research and expertise, as well the work of SSN members from other regions, to contribute to citizen engagement and more effective public policy in the region. We are interested in a broad range of issues. Health care and immigration are two examples.
