A big heartfelt thank you to all of you for giving me the opportunity to serve you as the next New Mexico State University president. After speaking with many members of the NMSU community during and after the interview, my wife, Patricia and I are ready to join you. We look forward to working for this great institution, and living in the friendly, vibrant and beautiful Las Cruces. Higher education is facing an uncertain future, and our university is not without challenges. However, NMSU is bursting with potential. I am ready to work closely with our faculty, staff, students, administrators and stakeholders to plan our path forward and realize our potential. Together we can improve our students’ educational experience to help them succeed, expand on collaborations, improve our research creativity and competitiveness, and increase knowledge and innovation.
Dr. John Floros
