NMSU and Howard University receive grant to increase engineering minority transfer and retention

New Mexico State University, a state institution serving more than 13,000 students, and Howard University, a Washington, D.C.-based, private college with fewer than 7,000 students, may seem to be dissimilar. Yet, they share a strong commonality: they both serve largely minority populations. Now they will join forces to improve retention and recruitment of under-represented minorities from community colleges into their engineering programs.
