A brief description of the programs sponsored by the institution to support under-represented groups within the staff:

At NMSU our faculty and staff are given the same training opportunities. As you can see from the URL below, we have many programs that discuss diversity among our employees and students. Since we live in an area with a very diverse ethnic and racial group NMSU sponsors many programs that celebrate our diversity. Of the President's top seven goals for the campus, diversity is Number One on the list.
