NMSU Outreach and Engagement

As a land-grant university, reaching out and engaging those we serve is as deeply ingrained in our culture as teaching and research. When I look at the wide range of outreach and engagement efforts across the NMSU system, it makes me proud to see the scope and the impact of our work across the state and the region. And, we can do more! 

Many in our state know the NMSU Cooperative Extension Service works in each of our 33 counties, but there are other ways our university is making a difference in the lives of our residents on a daily basis:

  • Food safety and security  
  • Educational and professional development opportunities for Native American students  
  • Arrowhead Center’s Studio G support student entrepreneurs  
  • Irrigation management training and resources
  • Math Snacks program to help our youth develop in critical math skills
  • NM Alliance for Minority Participation that supports under-represented students in completing degrees in the STEM disciplines
  • The New Mexico Small Business Assistance program that provides access to leading edge technical resources at state universities, and our national labs  
  • NM Technology Student Association for middle and high school students
  • Community Art workshop for plant making

What is your need for NMSU’s engagement? Where can you be a part of the outreach that NMSU performs each year? As we work together for a better future, I hope this website answers your questions, and encourages you to become a part of our outreach and engagement work.  

Go Aggies!
