About ACES Strategic Plan
The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences positively affects the health, economy and environment of New Mexico through four focus areas, known as the ACES Pillars - food and fiber production and marketing, water use and conservation, family development and health of New Mexicans, and environmental stewardship. The Pillars give life to the mission of the college which is to be an engine for the economic and community development in New Mexico. In order to fulfil the mission, a strategic plan is necessary.
Dean Flores has noted, "The strategic plan is fundamental for the College as it is for any organization that wants to move forward producing a substantial impact. In the case of the ACES college that impact is to the lives of New Mexicans."
The ACES Strategic Planning Committee was established to develop a strategic plan for the college. In developing the plan, the committee reviewed the existing strategic plan, the SWOT analysis recently conducted by each department and unit in the college to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and other relevant information.
Dean Flores is appreciative of the fact that everyone in ACES contributed to the development of the strategic plan from its formative stages to the final plan. The implementation of the plan has started and the plan will be reviewed periodically. So, please feel free to email us your comments and suggestions.
We encourage you to visit: LEADS 2025 to learn more about the NMSU strategic planning effort and to provide feedback on the process. We sincerely thank the ACES Strategic Planning Committee for devoting time and effort to this important project.
