President’s Message

Welcome to NMSU Grants!

It is an honor to serve as the Interim President of New Mexico State University Grants, where I have worked as the Vice-President for Academic Affairs for nearly ten years.  When I first moved to New Mexico in 1976 I was greeted by the warm welcome and friendly embrace of many different peoples and cultures.  I knew I had found my place in the world and have thus called West Central New Mexico home for over thirty years.

I extend this same warm welcome back to you, the people of Cibola County and the surrounding area.  I invite you to find a home at New Mexico State University for education, job training, and personal development.

We make every effort to meet your needs by providing a wide range of instruction from Adult Education and the GED program through advanced academics.  You might have a talent in welding, drafting, furniture making, jewelry making, or automotive technology.  Maybe you will discover an interest in computer science and game design, electronics, three dimensional manufacturing with a 3-D printer.  Maybe Nursing Assistant, Emergency Medical Technician, or the Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing are paths to a brighter future for you or a family member.

Our Faculty and Staff are sincere, skilled, and knowledgeable professionals, the majority with advanced degrees, dedicated to helping you discover and develop your natural talents and gifts.  We deliver courses in the traditional face-to-face format that emphasize hands on skill development as well as fully online courses that allow you to study from home using distance education technology.  We provide a wide range of classic academic courses such as Algebra, Astronomy, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Criminal Justice, Early Childhood and Elementary Education, English, Geography, History, Psychology, Sociology, and Spanish, as well as physical education, theater, and dance.

We help put the world at your fingertips.  Our campus library provides services comparable to many larger colleges and will connect you to mountains of information via digital databases.  We staff a state of the art networked testing center to offer two high school equivalency assessments as well as a wide range of professional certifications, and other services.

While New Mexico State University Grants is one of the smallest community colleges in New Mexico, we have a large heart, and are here to serve you.  I invite you to visit us in person or online to find out for yourself.
