Welcome to the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences!
We hope you will take a few minutes to see what our department has to offer.
We are committed to providing our students with excellent educational experiences that will prepare them to enter the workforce, further their education, and/or engage in community service upon graduation.
We have a dynamic, intellectual faculty and student body working toward improving the quality of individual and family life for all New Mexicans.
