NMSU Grants CCEDF Capital Outlay PresentationAugust 27, 2013 NMSU GRANTS FALL 2013 CONVOCATION STATE OF THE COLLEGE Felicia Casados, President Friday, September 6, 2013
(2) New Mexico Community College Statewide Service Areas NMSU Grants
(3) Encompassing 4 tribal communities, i.e. Laguna Pueblo, Acoma Pueblo, parts of Navajo Nation (To’hajiilee and Thoreau), and parts of Zuni Pueblo and four large public land bases
(4) McClure Hall as it looked when I arrived 8 years ago, 1 of 2 existing 1960 Job Corp facilities, used as campus academic space – Phase I: (closed for a year) - interior gutting/renovation A YEAR LATER Phase II: exterior walls built around it/insulated/exterior was ‘rebuilt’
(5) McClure Hall today!!
(6) Fidel Activity Center – our second metal sided remaining 1960 Job Corp building
(9) GED Programs at NM community colleges are the ‘safety net’ for high school drop outs, young ones as well as adults. In June 2013 we had 79 GED graduates; as many as our Associate degree students!! Dual Enrollment Students do not generate tuition support since tuition is waived but they do generate Student Credit Hours/SCH which adds value to our formula but they are also our pipeline so worth our investment! YEARDual Enrollment Students GED Students
(10) While Cibola County is not losing population, growth is very low (less than 1%), therefore our strategy to grow enrollment has been to turn back our focus on our service area by focusing on student populations and their interest in accessing higher education opportunities: Dual Enrollment Students utilizing our grants to support Summer Dual Enrollment Academies General Equivalency Diploma (GED) Our students interested in BS/BA Transfer Program via distance YEARDual Enrollment Students GED Students

NMSU Grants CCEDF Capital Outlay PresentationAugust 27, 2013 Grants Campus Master Plan
NMSU Grants CCEDF Capital Outlay PresentationAugust 27, 2013 Grants Campus Short Range Plan
NMSU Grants CCEDF Capital Outlay PresentationAugust 27, 2013 Grants Campus Long Range Plan
(18) Basic Community College Philosophy: Open admission – accept students where they are at academically. Keep tuition low to encourage ‘access’ to a college education. Provide both Career/Technical and Bachelor degree transfer programs Career/Technical programs are expensive to startup.
(19) NMSU Tuition Rates by Campus NMSU CampusCost of Tuition by Credit Hour (In district students) Cost of Tuition per Semester for Full-time Student (12+ credit hours) NMSU Grants$ 70.25$ 891 NMSU Carlsbad* Low tuition because of 3 mil passage $ 37.00$ 530 NMSU Alamogordo$ 76.00$ 960 Dona Ana$ 58.00$ 780 NMSU$ $ 3,110.40
(20) Tuition at other New Mexico 2-Year and 4-Year Campuses SchoolCredit Hour Tuition Tuition/semester for full-time student (12-18 credit hours) Two-year Schools CNM$ 48.25$ UNM Gallup$ 71.00$ UNM Valencia (Los Lunas)$ 65.05$ Four-Year Schools NM Highlands (Las Vegas)$ $ 2, Western NM (Silver City)$ $ 2, NM Tech (Socorro)$ $ 2, New Mexico State University$ $ 3, University of New Mexico$ $ 3,223.35
(21) New Mexico Branch Community College Act NMSU Grants was created in 1968 (45 years of operation) from a request of the Grants/Cibola School District to NMSU, utilizing a 1960 era Job Corp facility/property. NMSU Grants was created under the NM Branch Community College Act which required local voter support of 1 mil for operational support. NMSU Grants generates between $200,000-$220,000 from our 1 mil of annual property tax support; the amount fluctuates annually and is only acquired ‘if property taxes are collected’. NMSU Carlsbad who is only about 20% larger in student population than NMSU Grants generates $1,200,000/mil/annually and 5 years ago NMSU Carlsbad voters approved local election increase from 1 mil to 3 mil in return for lowering tuition rates (that is why they have lowest NMSU community college tuition rate, a slide I will show you later). NMSU Carlsbad now generates $3,600,000/annually from their local 3 mil support. NMSU Grants pays annual overhead fee of $220,000/year to NMSU (and % is going up annually), so basically our 1 mil covers our annual NMSU overhead fee. NMSU Carlsbad pays about $400,000 in annual overhead to NMSU, leaving them $3,200,000 additional annual funding (from their 3 mils) to support their campus capital needs (and other needs).
(22) New Mexico Branch Community College Act The Regents of NMSU are our ‘Governing Board’ and The NM Branch Community College act requires that the local school board, in our case, the Grants/Cibola County School Board acts as NMSU Grants ‘Advisory Board’ with two (2) major responsibilities: 1. Approve NMSU Grants annual budget; and 2. Approve (or disapprove) ability for NMSU Grants to seek local election to increase mil or local general obligation bond or both. When the Grants/Cibola School Board is ready to approve NMSU Grants to seek a local election to expand our mil and/or local GO bond, we must pay for the cost of local election and can not use college funds to pay for such an election (which can cost upwards of $25,000+). To date, Local School Board has been hesitant to allow NMSU Grants to seek expanded mil support (1-for political reasons/they are voted in and no one likes their property taxes to go up) and 2-they have not wanted it to negatively impact their own efforts to pass their own local GO Bond renewals which is how they have been able to renovate/rebuild their schools along with their K-12 capital funding in past few years.
(23) Issues In our 45 years of operation, NMSU Grants remains at 1 mil of local tax support; we have not requested increased mil support from our service area since it was created in 1968 and has never utilized its local GO bond capacity. As many of you know, as large tracks of land (contiguous to tribal lands) are bought by tribal communities it continues to eventually erode the local property tax base. NMSU Grants has local bonding capacity of $6,563,000 but we have never utilized it because local GO bonds must be paid back and we have not had a revenue source to cover this debt service. For NMSU Grants to utilize its local GO Bonding capacity it would require added mil support to pay for a local GO Bond (it is much like a mortgage). Our Higher education ‘capital outlay’ process is very different than K-12 system. K-12 has a much more defined and planned way in assisting public schools with capital needs largely due to lawsuits school districts brought to State Public Education Department in the past. In this economic era, our current Governor and Higher Education Secretary have said ‘no new facilities for higher education’ at this time!!
(24) Issues The primary method NMSU Grants has to receive capital outlay funding is every other year via the State General Obligation Bond for higher education. State GO Bond support for our campus has averaged about $1,000,000 every other year (so say $500,000/year); we have used the State GO Bond funds to renovate our existing facilities that were in desperate need of renovation when I arrived 8 years ago. Four years ago the State GO Bond was failed by NM Voters (Cibola County did pass it) for only the second time in its history and it paralyzed our ability to move forward on much needed renovations to our campus. As you all know, public lands and tribal lands do not pay into property tax system. But tribal communities do vote in local property tax elections even though they do not pay property taxes.
(25) Issues The Higher Education Capital Outlay Committee which we present to annually in August (comprised of 4 State Agency representatives, i.e. Higher Ed Department, Legislative Finance Committee, Department of Finance and Administration and Energy & Minerals Department) has made it clear to us that no new higher education facilities (in future after new building moratorium is lifted) will be considered for NM college campuses without local capital support for those facilities. They are not requiring a $1 to $1 match but they want a substantial commitment from local community before they will agree to support any new construction on our campuses. NMSU Grants has been working towards building a new Child Development Education Center in order to tie it into a learning lab with our Teacher Education Program; replacing two decaying portable buildings currently used for the largest state licensed child care center (Small Wonders) in Grants serving 50 children, infants thru school age, managed by a local nonprofit but housed on NMSU Grants campus/facilities. NMSU Grants pays for all child care center utilities and cost of maintenance. A few years ago mold was discovered in the floor of the infant room and it had to be replaced. In 2012 we receive $35,000 in legislative support for preliminary planning and design for a new Child Care Education Center facility. We now have a $5,700,000 price tag to construct this facility, expanding current 55 child care slots to 80 (based on Small Wonders waiting list). Child Care facilities/services support student retention and area employment (allowing parents to work).
(26) Child Development Education Center Preliminary Estimated Construction Cost: $5,700,000 Expanding child care services from: Current 55 children (20/school age/20 toddlers/20 infants) to 80 children (24/school age, 20/preschool, 16 toddlers/and 20/infants) and Tie-In as Learning Lab for campus Teacher Education Program Child Development Education Center Preliminary Estimated Construction Cost: $5,700,000 Expanding child care services from: Current 55 children (20/school age/20 toddlers/20 infants) to 80 children (24/school age, 20/preschool, 16 toddlers/and 20/infants) and Tie-In as Learning Lab for campus Teacher Education Program
