The university said Monday that it's participating in the program, which also aims to award more degrees by 2025. The effort is being organized by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.

NMSU President John Floros says the program offers an opportunity for the university to share its findings and learn from others what works best for them.

The participating institutions reflect a wide array of institutional characteristics such as enrollment, student demographics and regional workforce needs. Officials say the diversity is intended to help create a playbook of reforms that can be adapted to different types of institution, including those with limited resources.
