    School Overview

    New Mexico State University, a four-year, public, land-grant institution, was founded in 1888 as Las Cruces College. In 1889, the New Mexico territorial legislature authorized the creation of an agricultural college and experiment station and Las Cruces College became the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. Due to rapid growth, in 1960 university status was awarded and the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts became New Mexico State University. The school's mission is "to serve the educational needs of New Mexico’s diverse population through comprehensive programs of education, research, extension education, and public service."
