Virtual Graduation Presentation

Check out our graduation presentation celebrating the 2020 NMSU-A Graduates, Program and Professional Certificate Recipients, and PACE Graduates. Due to the continued concern for safety and the increased risk of the virus in large groups, we will not host a live graduation in September. We will invite those who did not walk this past spring to join us Spring 2021 if they so choose (and if we are in a social environment that will allow large gatherings).
