Our mission is to serve the people of New Mexico through education, research, extension education, and public service with specific emphasis on innovative practices, overcoming barriers to learning, international activities, technology, and literacy for the diverse populations of New Mexico, surrounding states and border communities.
At our core, New Mexico State University is about discovery. For our students, NMSU is a place where they can discover themselves and what they want to do with their lives. Research discoveries of our faculty are scientifically and historically profound.
As we envision the future, our collective get-it-done attitude will be the force by which we realize our ambitious goals. NMSU is one of the best universities in the country, and we have the best College of Education in the state. We have pride in what we do, perform at a high level, and have confidence in our future.
