As we begin our 2006 academic year, UNM-Valencia Campus celebrates its 25th Anniversary of providing excellent education at an affordable price for the citizens of our region. We have seen our college grow from a few make shift classrooms in a shopping center a quarter of a century ago, to a permanent campus in 1986, to our current state-of-the-art campus.

Beginning with a student population of about 300 students in 1981, UNM-Valencia Campus now serves thousands of students a year in college transfer and technical programs, adult basic education classes, job training courses, and a wide range of community and cultural activities for kids, seniors, and everyone in between.

Over 2,100 students have graduated from UNM-Valencia since its inception, in certificate and degree programs that have led to successful careers in teaching, public service, business, computer-aided drafting, and medical fields.

Our low-cost, high-quality instructional programs are designed to give you the intellectual tools and the skills needed to succeed in the highly competitive workforce of the 21st Century. Whether you are a student just beginning your college career right out of high school, a returning student upgrading your skills or looking for a new career, or a community member wanting to enrich your life by taking leisure courses or attending cultural events, UNM-Valencia welcomes you.

Having taught and been an administrator in colleges for more than 35 years, I am proud to say that I have never experienced faculty and staff more dedicated to student success than at the UNM-Valencia Campus. Learning here is personal. Faculty are friendly. Staff are helpful. When you come to Valencia Campus, you become a member of our college family. If you have questions about our college, please contact us at 925-8560, or visit our website at vc.unm.edu.

We look forward to seeing you!
