As the elected government of the student body of New Mexico State University Associated Students of NMSU (ASNMSU) represents the students on city, university, state and federal levels. The president of ASNMSU serves on the University Board of Regents. All students are encouraged to participate in ASNMSU sponsored events, as well as to get involved with the inner workings of student government as an elected or appointed official.
Associated Students of New Mexico State University is committed to serving the student body of NMSU. They endeavor to enhance the college experience by providing valuable programs, events, and services to the students of NMSU. As a governing body, it is our duty to use decorum in all situations involving our constituents and the image of the university community.
In future years, ASNMSU seeks to continually grow with the university. This is attainable through ever progressive technology, resources and leadership. They are committed to serving current students, as well as positioning themselves to sustain future administrations. Above all they represent the interests of the student body at all times.
The NMSU Employee Council’s function is to perform the following: a) review and develop proposals on matters involving the policies and procedures of the administration of the university, b) make recommendations to the University President and/or units based on such reviews, and c) provide communication between the staff and the administration of the university including community colleges. This is an elected position and this position serves on the Board of Regents.
TEACHING: The Faculty Senate is the voice of the NMSU Faculty and plays a critical role in the shared governance of the institution. As established in NMSU Policy, the Faculty Senate has legislative jurisdiction over policies affecting the university’s academic mission. All senators participate in one of four standing committees. These are charged with reviewing, modifying, and recommending legislation for action by the full senate. The senate meets a minimum of once a month to fulfill its obligations in a timely manner. The Faculty Senate has a seat on the Board of Regents. https://facultysenate.nmsu.edu/
RESEARCH: The University Research Council (URC) is a "stand-alone" council established to foster research at New Mexico State University. Its role is to offer advice to the Vice President for Research and the Executive Vice President and Provost regarding research affairs at the University. The council defines needs of the faculty and other researchers; analyzes services, policies, and procedures that affect research; and makes recommendations which, in its view, will facilitate the research process and research productivity at the University. The URC is not a policy making body, but rather a council established to develop policy recommendations to be passed on, through the Vice President for Research to the Executive Vice President and Provost, the Academic Deans' Council, and the Faculty Senate. http://ovpr.research.nmsu.edu/URC
The university president and others meet with community members. Our community outreach occurs on a regular basis with City of Las Cruces stakeholders such as the Public Schools Superintendent, City Manager, and Mayor. We hold public meetings for projects such as our Master Plan. Our “Town and Gown” committee was formed in 2012 to have an informal safe place to talk about community events and occurrences. Every quarter the president, provost, and real estate director meet with the Bureau of Land Management. Our University Architect sits on the "University Avenue Corridor" committee, the main thoroughfare NMSU shares with the City of Las Cruces. NGO’s, such as Mesilla Valley Economic Development Association meets with the Chancellor and other stakeholders with the university.
