From NMSU’s Vision 2020 Strategic Plan (one of seven major goals)
Internationalization: Effectively prepare students for a global society
Our vision is to achieve a national reputation for delivering a diverse, interdisciplinary education where students understand, and have the ability to live and work with, people of various cultures, histories and languages. We must graduate individuals with the knowledge and skills to compete globally. We see a future where every student and faculty member has an international experience, where we prepare the next generation of leaders to meet global challenges.
Our mission is to lead with an international focus in teaching, research, learning, and service, all integral to the mission of New Mexico State University. Our charge is to challenge the imagination, foster ideas, and provide leadership in international education.
