On April 25, Cedric Page, executive director of UNM - Los Alamos, convened the institution’s first Higher Education Summit.
A special group of community leaders joined forces with the key UNM-LA staff to examine where UNM Los Alamos is going, how it will get there and what will it look like in the future.
This community component of UNM-LA’s strategic planning component helped garner a wide ranging set of strategies. While the open and collaborative dialogue covered many topics, we believe it vital to capture the essence of the feedback and act strategically to begin implementation of community expectations.
Here’s a brief summary of the most significant advice we receive from the community leaders:
• Use a business model to become a non-traditional college focused on unique degree programs designed to attract students from inside and outside Los Alamos.
• Offer unique degree programs that should be pursued to create the right niche including science, technology, engineering and mathematics; quantitative biology; information sciences; and applied technologies.
• Conduct a thorough needs assessment that analyzes not only the degree requirements for the lab, the county and local business but also assesses the physical capacity for student population growth.
