NMSU: Hispanic Heritage


In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, New Mexico State University will host NMSU Leads: Celebratory Symposium, Empowering Student Success at Hispanic-Serving Institutions through Regional and National Programs.

The event will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, at Domenici Hall, Room 102, and is free and open to the NMSU campus and local community.

“As one of the nation’s first Hispanic-serving institutions of higher education, NMSU has a rich tradition of supporting student success,” said Elba Serrano, Regents professor. “Speakers will present program strategies that recruit, retain and graduate students, with an emphasis on STEM fields.”

Speakers include Jeanne Garland, program director for the New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation; Martha Desmond, Regents professor and principal investigator for the Natural Resources Career Track Program; and Tony Marin, assistant vice president for Student Affairs; and Martha Estrada, program director for the College Assistance Migrant Program. The symposium concludes with a reception at 2 p.m. For more information email vpeid@nmsu.edu or hsihub-admin@nmsu.edu.

The Aggie football game, which kicks off at 6 p.m. at Aggie Memorial Stadium, features NMSU against rival UNM and is the culmination of NMSU’s Hispanic Heritage Month. A free Fan Fiesta begins at 2 p.m. north of the stadium until game time, and will include performances by Mariachi Flores Mexicanas, a piñata surprise, Xtreme Cruces Wrestling luchadores matches and more.
