NM State Regent Mike Cheney: Graduation Rates, Diversity And Internationalization Of Athletics Help Build Culture Of Pride

Written By: Mike Cheney, New Mexico State University Regent

As at most institutions, New Mexico State Athletics seems to be a hot topic when talks of state and university budgets arise every new school year. But as the newest appointed member of the Board of Regents at New Mexico State University, I see athletics as a part of the university that builds future leaders and a vital part of NMSU that our community must always be proud of and support.

Some important areas of athletics that I feel not many Aggie fans are familiar with are our student-athlete graduation success rate, the diversity and internationalization of athletics and our efforts in trying to build cultural pride.

Most see athletics as a separate part of the university away from the academic side but in reality it’s a place that gives student-athletes a competitive atmosphere not only on the field but in life. Athletics grows leaders and is a real-life learning opportunity for that type of growth. Not many people have the opportunity to learn how to compete at such a high level and, win or lose, receive those important skills it takes to improve on success or get back up from failure, correct your mistakes and push forward in life.   Continue Reading This Post >>
