LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A civil rights group is faulting New Mexico State University for not including them in the advisory and selection process of naming a new president.

The New Mexico League of United Latin American Citizens said in a letter Monday that it was being excluded and faulted NMSU for the low number of Latinos on the school's board of regents.

Paul "Pablo" Martinez told the board of regents in a letter that LULAC was included with the recent selection of University of New Mexico President Bob Frank.

NMSU spokeswoman Julie Hughes says the board has received LULAC's letter and is in the process of responding. Community forums of the five presidential finalists began this week.

NMSU President Barbara Couture abruptly stepped down last year following a mysteriously administrative leave.
