All about Discovery

NMSU transforms lives through discovery. Here, students find themselves, who they are and what they want to be. We are New Mexico's land-grant institution, a comprehensive research institution of higher education dedicated to teaching, research and public service and outreach. A Hispanic-serving institution, NMSU serves a multi-cultural population of students and community members across the state at five campuses, a satellite learning center in Albuquerque, cooperative extension offices located in each of New Mexico's 33 counties, and 12 agriculture research and science centers.

NMSU is truly a reflection of the region's vibrant communities - an exciting place to tackle challenges, find answers to important issues and prepare for the future. For generations, our researchers have made important discoveries in agriculture, engineering, science and many other fields. Our Cooperative Extension Service discovers ways to help the state's residents meet the everyday challenges facing them. Whether it is in the classroom, a laboratory or out in the community performing public service, we take pride in the accomplishments of NMSU's students, faculty and staff.

Celebrating Diversity

NMSU is classified as a Hispanic-serving institution by the U.S. Department of Education and is a member of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. Our student population on the Las Cruces campus is 45 percent Hispanic; other minorities that make up the student body include American Indians, Asians and African-Americans. Historically, NMSU has supported minorities in their academic goals--in fact, we admitted an African-American woman in 1928, well ahead of most other institutions of higher education. The university offers a multitude of support services to all students; interested minorities may also take advantage of the American Indian Program, Black Programs and Chicano Programs offices.
