The Mexican Consortium of Universities ( Spanish: Consorcio de Universidades Mexicanas, CUMEX) is a selective group of Mexican public higher education institutions, recognized by their higher quality standards.
Founded in May 2005, CUMEX has established a rigorous selection system. Members must be affiliated with the "umbrella" national association of universities ( ANUIES by its acronym in Spanish). However, not all ANUIES members are able to comply with the eligibility criteria established at CUMEX.
Membership at CUMEX constitutes a reference about Mexican higher education institutions holding higher quality standards than their peers.
