Indian Resources Development

Indian Resources Development (IRD) connects Indigenous students in the state of New Mexico with opportunities for internships, on-the-job experiences, and education in the fields of agriculture, environmental and consumer sciences, engineering, and business. Through collaborations and network building, the IRD promotes self-directed and self-sustaining economic development and management of resources by Indigenous peoples on tribal lands in New Mexico.

Indian Resources Development was created with legislative statute in 1977 and is housed at New Mexico State University but aims to serve the state of New Mexico.

Contact us for more information about the IRD Program and its services for tribes and students.
