Study: CNM Economic Impact

Economic Contribution of Central New Mexico Community College

Analysis of Investment Effectiveness and Economic Growth

Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) generates a wide array of benefits. Students benefit from higher personal income, and society benefits from cost savings associated with reduced welfare and unemployment, improved health, and reduced crime. Education, however, requires a substantial investment on the part of students and taxpayers. All of the education stakeholders, therefore, want to know if they are getting their money's worth.
