The Open Session agenda included discussion of an upgraded dining services plan, enrollment updates at the Las Cruces campus, and a report from NMSU-A’s President, Cheri Jimeno.
President Jimeno discussed updates from the Alamogordo campus including an HSI STEM Grant for Strengthening Science, Engineering, and Energy Career Options, their completion programs with the Las Cruces campus, and enrollment. She also presented the Regents with the LEED Gold Certification for NMSU Alamogordo’s Advanced Technology Center, the second building project on the NMSU-A campus to be certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Stacie Pritchett, NMSU-A Academic Support Center writing tutor, has an article published in the New Mexico Museum of Space History Curation Papers (Number Three, Summer 2011). The article titled, “Figs in space!: From freeze-dried food to seat belts: NASA tech here on Earth,” reflects Stacie’s own style of humor.

According to the Susan G. Koman studies, about 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will occur among women in the U.S. this year. (An estimated 39,840 will die.) Also, about 1,970 men will be diagnosed with an estimated 390 dying.
Monday, October 10th through Saturday, October 15th is “Pink Week.” During “Pink Week” we celebrate those who have survived breast cancer, support those who are currently fighting the disease, and remember those who have lost the battle. NMSU-A joins the “Pink Week” campaign because we believe that education is imperative for prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer. Early diagnosis can mean the difference between surviving and becoming a statistic.
During “Pink Week” all NMSU-A students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear pink every day to show their support. On Saturday the 15th, the NMSU Aggies play the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” football game against the Idaho Vandals.
We at NMSU-A invite you to support this important cause with us and recognize those who have been touched with this disease. The goal is to eradicate this cancer; we can start with education.
