Water in the Desert (#CNMWitD) is a hands-on learning project centered on water resources management. It consists of service learning opportunities directed by the Sustainability  Committee and the Physical Plant Department. Students may earn a Sustainability Certificate by providing at least 8 hours of water resources related service to CNM in two different ways:

  1. Through service-learning that is a part of existing course curriculum (instructor must give permission in advance), or 
  2. on their own as an individual project (not related to a course).
