President Kathie Winograd announced that CNM will
build upon its longtime legacy of responding to the needs
of the community with the opening of the new CNM
STEMulus Center in Downtown Albuquerque later this
year. Click here to read more.
After gathering input from Rio Rancho residents at recent
forums on how CNM should expand its program offerings
in the City of Vision, CNM plans to respond to the needs
of the community by offering new educational programs
in Rio Rancho at the AMREP building located at the
corner of Northern Blvd. and NM 528, pending state
approval. The programs being considered for the building
include: Emergency Medical Services (EMS); Fire
Science; Nursing Assistant; Electrical Trades (first
semester courses); Teacher Education; Criminal Justice;
Child Development; Education Assistant; Teachers Using
Technology course; and Health 1001.
As part of CNM’s sustainability efforts, the college is
installing four new photovoltaic (solar panel) systems at
four locations that will serve as “living labs” for faculty
and students. The first one went up on the roof of the Rio
Rancho Campus building last month. The second is
currently being mounted on the roof of the Westside I
Building.
CNM is in the process of installing solar photovoltaic
arrays at four of its campuses. Steve House can speak to
CNM classes to give a brief introduction to solar energy
and he can tailor a presentation to the needs of the class.

CNM is preparing to embark on a major renovation of the
Main Campus Laboratory (L) Building in April and it will
last approximately 16 months. CNM chemistry, physics
and astronomy labs will be moved to other campuses
starting with the summer term. Other science labs -including biology, geology, anatomy and physiology,
microbiology and geography -- will be relocated to
temporary facilities on Main Campus. The L Building
renovation will result in new state-of-the-art labs and
classrooms with major upgrades to technology and student
study spaces. The renovation is designed to meet
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
certification.
Support CNM graduates by participating in the Spring
2014 Graduation Ceremony that will take place at Tingley
Coliseum on Saturday, May 03, at noon.
CNM Presidential Fellow of Innovation David Valdés has
dedicated funds to help faculty teams get their projects off
the ground. The Faculty Project Fund will provide grants
of up to $1,500 to help turn great ideas for connecting
students and the community into realities.

CNM employees will have nearly 50 times the email
storage space and a specially-dedicated place for
archiving documents when CNM moves to Microsoft
Office 365 this summer/fall. Users won’t see a
difference on the front end. They will still use
Microsoft’s Outlook application on their desktop to
view emails and calendars. However, individuals
using the web-based email system, like on their home
computer, will see a minor difference.
