CNM Annual Report 2017-18

CNM's Annual Report is produced through collaboration between the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (OPIE) and the Marketing and Communications Office (MCO). It contains some of the most commonly requested information about the college.

Dear CNM Community,

picture of Dr. Katharine W. Winograd
Thanks for taking the time to browse through the 2017-18 Annual Report, which provides a snapshot of our important work at CNM.

Each day, our faculty and staff are working hard to advance our vision of “Changing Lives, Building Community,” which constantly motivates us to help more students succeed and contribute to the wellbeing of their families and our community.

CNM’s enrollment for credit classes in the 2017 Fall Term was 24,442 students, which was the largest undergraduate student enrollment in the state. We also served thousands of other New Mexicans through non-credit workforce training programs, industry testing for credentials and licensures, and adult basic education courses.

CNM students represent all walks of life, spanning young people making the transition from high school, later learners returning to college to make a career change, and people of all ages and backgrounds improving their prospects with a new skill or certification.

Over the past 10 years, CNM has achieved remarkable increases in the numbers of students reaching graduation and the number of degrees and certificates they earn. We have also led the nation in the number of associate degrees and certificates awarded to Hispanics and Native Americans, and we’ve been No. 2 overall. Our faculty and staff have put tremendous effort toward helping more of our students persevere. Because every time a student graduates, not only does the student benefit greatly, but so does their family, our community and our economy.

CNM is constantly adjusting its educational offerings to ensure that we’re providing students with pathways that lead to high-quality jobs that also serve the workforce needs of our economy. We have a well-earned reputation for working closely with local businesses and industries to ensure our students are learning the skills they need to succeed in the workplace. For decades, our graduates have been highly coveted by employers and have formed the backbone of our region’s workforce.

As you’ll see in this report, CNM’s faculty and staff continue to serve our students, community and economy with outstanding effectiveness that aligns with our Vision, Mission and Values.

If you’re already part of CNM’s journey as a student, alumni, employee, or community partner, thank you. If this is your first time visiting (or it’s been a while), welcome!

Sincerely, 
Dr. Katharine W. Winograd
CNM President

About CNM

CNM HAS BEEN ‘CHANGING LIVES, BUILDING COMMUNITY’ SINCE 1965

picture of CNM graduates
Following authorization by the New Mexico Legislature in 1963, CNM (then known as Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute or “TVI”) was approved by district voters in 1964 to provide adults with skills to gain quality employment and succeed in life. The college opened on July 1, 1965, on a small section of where Main Campus stands today.

TVI was accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools in 1978 and given degree-granting power by the State Legislature in 1986, at which point TVI became a full-fledged community college. In 2006, TVI changed its name to Central New Mexico Community College to better reflect the college’s breadth of offerings and the area it serves.

Since its inception and throughout its history, CNM’s career-focused programs in business, health, technologies and trades have been continuously redesigned to provide students with relevant job skills. Today, CNM offers certificates and associate degrees in more than 90 fields of study, as well as many non-credit and accelerated workforce training options.

Advisory committees that include local business and industry representatives collaborate with CNM to develop programs that prepare students to succeed in the workplace. We also collaborate with industry on customized workforce training programs.

CNM has strong ties with universities, colleges, and public school districts across the region, including transfer agreements with all public universities in New Mexico, and a dual credit program that enables high school students to take tuition-free CNM classes that count for both high school and college credit.

The Path Up

In addition to associate degrees and certificates in 90-plus college-credit programs of study, CNM offers both adult basic education and developmental education classes.

These programs are aimed at responding to the needs of our community, and helping more individuals become ready for college-level classes. Adult basic education and developmental education classes are particularly important to first generation college students and families living at or below the federal poverty guidelines, a population of students that are important to our state’s culture, values and economy.

During the 2017-2018 fiscal year, 2,008 students participated in at least 12 contact hours of Adult Basic Education courses at CNM. Fifty-five individuals took and passed the High School Equivalency exams (GED or HiSET).

Over the past few years, CNM has redesigned our developmental education offerings, accelerating entry into college-level courses and reducing time spent solely on remediation. CNM also implemented a new “Jumpstart” program that enables students to work on basic skills while also taking college-level courses. More than 500 students are enrolled in that program currently.
