NMSU International Board of Directors

Several people standing against a wall, the International Board of Directors 2017

What They Do

The IBD is made up of alumni representatives from each academic college, each of the last 5 decades and every region of the United States. The mission of the NMSU Alumni Association is to connect alumni and friends back to NMSU and help advance the University's goals, promote student success and continue to spread Aggie spirit and pride. The IBD supports this by creating and guiding alumni initiatives that engage alumni in numerous ways throughout the year.

Members of the Board promote NMSU, connect alumni and friends, advise the Association, network with other Aggies at events and celebrations, support students, serve on committees and programs, share expertise and assist the NMSU Foundation as Ambassadors to promote engagement, development and stewardship.  Board members volunteer an average of 5 hours each month, maintain an active membership in the Alumni Association, and participate as Aggie Ambassadors throughout the year.
