Our Mission: Leadership for Community Capacity Building

Our Vision: Nurture a diverse leadership of the next generation of civically minded youth at UNM and CNM from local neighborhoods for community capacity building.

The Community Engagement Center (CEC) was formed in 1997 by faculty, staff, students, and community members who wanted to better utilize university and community assets to meet community identified needs through education, community engagement and leadership development. CEC serves as a university-based  intermediary with communities to implement community goals.
