I, being a retiree, I am well acquainted with the campus. I have a education and business backgrounds so can read financial statements. I have worked in the county in numerous organizations and either sit on or have sit on a variety of boards of community organizations.
Putting the new Technology Center campus on the west side of Los Lunas to its best usage, which includes having a variety of technical courses. By having new technical classes in the Technology center, that will allow the main campus in Tome to have more space for additional classes or office areas.
The UNM-Valencia Advisory Board does include the current student president on the board. Perhaps the board could include a student member, chosen by the students or faculty to get more input from the students. The Advisory Board does attend meeting designed to work on the issue.
Yes, UNM-Valencia works toward having funds to achieve their goals. The campus also works on grants for particular projects along with working with the UNM Main campus to further the campus goals. Projects are not undertaken unless adequate finances are available.
