LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University is not closing any of its 12 agricultural science centers in the state -- at least not yet.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reported earlier this month that the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences conducted a self-evaluation of the centers as it grapples with less funding in the face of a statewide budget crisis.

College of ACES Dean Rolando A. Flores says closing any of the centers is a "last recourse."

Flores says the College of ACES needs to rationalize its funds and properly manage its resources.

New Mexico State has formed a committee to figure out ways to operate the centers more efficiently. The committee includes private industry professionals, as well as some agricultural science center superintendents, college department heads and faculty members.
