NMSU College of ACES evaluates agricultural science center system

Public concern regarding New Mexico State University potentially closing two agricultural science centers has stimulated the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences to conduct a self-evaluation of the 12 centers around the state.

?At this time we are not closing any centers; that would be the last recourse, but it is on the table,? said College of ACES Dean Rolando A. Flores. ?In a time of low budgets, we need to rationalize and properly manage our resources.?

During visits with the advisory boards at each agricultural science center, Flores explained the evaluation process the college has begun.
