Responders needed for the QuickConnect Program

QuickConnect, an early alert and intervention program, is dedicated to offering assistance to all NMSU faculty and students.  The purpose of the program is to intervene with students who may be experiencing difficulties early in the semester.  Responders are staff and faculty who want to make a difference in the success of students.  Commitment as a responder is minimal and enriching.  You can’t beat that!   Please contact lkirby@nmsu.edu or call 646-1342, Student Success Center-Zuhl for more information and to volunteer as a QC Responder.

What does higher education mean to New Mexico?

A college degree means higher wages, and states with a higher percent of college graduates have lower poverty rates.  The publication Higher Ed + State of New Mexico has more reminders about the importance of higher education in our state:

  • By 2019, New Mexico will have a projected 88,340 new job openings to fill. Education, business and financial operations, as well as computer and mathematical occupations are all projected to experience double-digit growth.
  • More than 90% of graduates surveyed from New Mexico Universities are employed.
