NEWS – Albuquerque Center is Moving – NEWS
As many of you are aware, during the past few months we have been in conversation with Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) exploring a space sharing partnership. For several years, the cost of having so much extra square footage at the Pinetree Center has been of great concern. This coupled with the university’s current budget challenges led us to explore other locations for the Albuquerque Center. It was through the efforts of NMSU Chancellor Carruthers and CNM President Winograd that the opportunity to collaborate with CNM emerged. We have entered into a a three-year lease with CNM to locate the NMSU Albuquerque Center at the CNM Montoya campus’ Building K (4700 Morris St. NE). The move will allow us to maintain our stron Masters of Social Work program while continuing to support NM EDGE, the Family & Child Welfare Training Project, and other partners.
Fall 2016 classes will be at the Montoya Campus with the initial move happening in early August. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available under Quick Links to the right.
Welcome to New Mexico State University Albuquerque Center! The Albuquerque Center is a vibrant hub for academic and community interaction, and its convenient central location provides outreach for recruitment, student orientation, alumni events, meetings, and conferences. The principal function for the Albuquerque Center is coordination between the facility and Las Cruces campus academic services, and facility event management that serves thousands of guests annually. The Center’s meeting, classroom, and office space provides a location more convenient to New Mexico’s state capitol and to the Albuquerque International Sunport. Albuquerque’s central location makes it a natural hub for outreach into rural areas of the state that lie beyond convenient access to Las Cruces. In Albuquerque as in Las Cruces, it’s All About Discovery!
Degree programs delivered at or through the Albuquerque Center satisfy a demand otherwise unmet in central and northern New Mexico. Innovative technologies are utilized to deliver programs to our non-traditional students throughout New Mexico.
