Amid heated politics, college class brings together U.S., Mexico students

Fernando Leon-Garcia has had to scale geographic barriers, language barriers and cultural barriers his entire life.

“I’m Chinese, Mexican-American, naturalized U.S. [citizen.] I navigate on both sides of the border and the world,” he said.

Leon-Garcia is the president of Centro de Enseñanza Técnica y Superior (CETYS), a three-campus Tijuana-area university. On a recent Monday, he made the five-hour drive north to the University of La Verne in eastern L.A. County with 14 of his college students. They’re enrolled with 12 University of La Verne students in a class titled “Leadership and Culture: Building Bridges.”
