NMSU is currently undertaking an Economic Development Impact Study to determine the university’s areas of economic success and opportunities for growth. This study will be completed in the fall of 2023 and will be available soon on this site.

The university's economic development cabinet and larger team were established in fall of 2022 to recognize, enhance, and promote the economic development impact NMSU has on local, regional, and national economies. 

NMSU's economic development plan is structured as a frequently updated and revised document that includes economic development goals, activities, actions, and measures and deliverables. These activities are determined by each team member relative to their specific areas of interests, and outcomes will be measured that define the success of NMSU economic development impact.  

In moving forward, the team will continue to add action items that will enhance NMSU contributions to economic development over the course of the next several years. These contributions will be measured against a baseline determined by the NMSU Economic Development Impact study. This is a long-term commitment to measure progress against a baseline will remain important to the mission of NMSU.
