Our purpose at New Mexico State University is to be a caring community that transforms lives through discovery. As New Mexico’s land-grant university we fulfill our purpose through excellence in teaching, research, extension education and public service. Uniting each of those important elements is a foundation of discovery.
With five campuses across the state, a satellite office in Albuquerque and more than 150 academic programs within six colleges, NMSU provides students avenues to discovery.
NMSU researchers drive discovery every day, finding solutions for issues around the state, country and world.
Through Extension, NMSU touches about one-third of all New Mexicans, delivering practical, research-based knowledge to them.
It’s clear: The phrase “All About Discovery!” serves as a concise and fitting summary of who we are and what we do. Those three words quickly communicate to all audiences our proud tradition of advancing academic, personal, professional and community success.
